Very good, you seem to make it so effortless! N.
It is easier than it was 30 years ago. But you can do it too. It is not as hard as you may think. It is just a matter of carving. The more you do the more you learn the more you can do.

Looks like the start of another great piece. Walnut should make for a beautiful finished piece!

Had some time today. Did a little detail work around the eyes I dampen the wood with a spray bottle and quickly rapped it i a paper towel. This make the detail stand out more and these old eye can get a better idea if what to do next.

Noted it looks like an issue with the left eye. While there is still work to be done on the eyes it is the lighting that makes it look like a chip out on the inside of the lower lid area.

great to be back but miss the warm weather and sunshine

Your right about the knights they did have a checked past as do the cathlic church but it was a different time but it appears that religion has a lot to answer for both then and now.

you would think in todays day and age people would learn from the past but religion and politics are still the most troublesome things there are.
