#27 Wood Carving: Doc commission nearing completion.
It is almost finished! After three months and many small steps, Doc 2 nears completion. Paint brushes came out today after chores where done. The paint scheme for Doc 2 is from Phil Bishop. Doc 2 is, as I said in the
last Doc post, from a Bishop rough out.
Phil did a great job on the original paint work. The skin is a mix of medium flesh, dark flesh and Georgia Clay. Doc’s hair is Brown Iron Oxide. The shirt is Denim Blue and the tie is Bright Red. Pants are Wintergreen. The stethoscope adds a nice touch with Metallic Silver. And the lab coat is official doctor white.
All that is left now is that Doc needs to dry for a day or two. After he dries he will be dipped into boiled
linseed oil with a little Burnt Sienna. That will soak in for a night and Doc will be ready for shipping. Now the next commission – four faces which need painting.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16: 34
