Untitled Work in Progress

 Carving finished, still in need of finishing and a base. This has been another side project small enough to work on at the apartment when I can't get into my studio (most of the time lately). This is a pretty ambitious piece for this scale; the whole figure is under five inches. The piece is done in quince wood, which has a fine enough grain to hold the detail even in the face. I enjoy the speed with which you can see a piece come together when working at this scale, but there is a funny effect by which small pieces feel like they look better in photos than in real life, where unless you lean in and look at them closely they tend to get overlooked...
