Well I finally bit the bullet, I have always had a wish to be able to carve a likeness of someone.
I have tried in the past with no success, but decided to try again. This time I studied the form first
instead of going gang ho and in to it.
This is my interpretation of our Prime Minister Julia Gillard, The bust is in white beech approx 180 mm high and finished with danish oil, white shellac anh polish.
I think this time I have reached a likeness which I think is close.
Hope you can see her as well.
Apologies for my bad photo's, they always appear washed out.
