86 Other carving: Book carving GUY LARAMEE
It is wood. Well, at least it began as wood. I know, it isn’t in the traditional form, but wonderfully carved none the less. I have shown other book carvers, but these are really fun. Have you seen Petras? Guy has done a masterful job of giving us the feeling of the place.
The rest of these book carvings are also eye appealing. One reminds me of a Pueblo of Southwestern USA. Another has to be named Pagoda. Not sure if I see it correctly, but one looks like it has a grave at the top – are those flowers? What do you think? Another I call “Oriental Mountain.” It reminds me of scenes from China. The final one, which also looks oriental, I have named “Overunder.” It has a great feel to it.
CARVING TIP: You will notice the good lighting that the photographer used when taking these pictures. A good tip for wood carvers. I am trying to learn the ropes of lighting. One site I read mentioned setting up a photo area. Have the camera, lights, materials and any thing else needed for photographing ready in one place. Then, when you have a carving ready, it is but a moment to take a few shots and you have something to post.
