It was based on an article in Issue #4 of the Carving magazine. I was intrigued by the way that the wings were done so I thought I’d give it a try. It was also my first time at painting a piece.
The project was quite simple. Basically cutting the pattern out for the body and a bit of carving around the head and beak. The wings were cut out and feathers carved using a V tool. It sits on a wooden shaft and base and stands approximately 22″ high.
Here is a close up of the wing. You can see where it was carved to give a layered look:

As I said, this was a quick, easy project that was fun to do. I would like to make more at some point, and possibly with different type birds.
