Thread: Old dump truck relief carving

  1. #1

    Old dump truck relief carving

    This is a carving that I have been working on for the construction company I work for. The panel is approximately 3' x 4' x 2" and is made of basswood. This has been a very challenging piece for me. The perspectives really have made me think twice before I cut. I still have a long way to go and will post pictures along the way.

    Roger, you've nailed it so far. I'm looking forward to the progression.

    I like what you are doing with the exception of the boards in the foregound. I think I would subdue them some. It takes your eye away from the dumptruck.

    Holy cow... I skipped over this thread when it first popped up as carving as a hobby is not my thing (though I always like the final results). That was a mistake. I'm really impressed by this piece, Roger. Nicely done!

    I'd say you've really dumped it ! Hoot!

    That's a really good job and the perspective sizing is right on the money IMO.

    My grandson likes looking at it too !

    Thanks for posting.

    I finally completed the staining today and all that is left is a clear coat. This piece was a real learning experience for me. IMGP0125-002.jpgIMGP0124-002.jpgIMGP0126-002.jpgIMGP0123-002.jpgIMGP0121-002.jpg

    Roger, that is incredible; as I don't do any carving I am in awe at what an artist can do with a blank canvas or piece of wood.

    I think the last picture really shows the importance of varying textures in a work. I like the way you styled the trees and ground in the background. Your work clearly shows that all elements of a picture are important. Very nicely done!
