Country landscape scenes featuring barns, churches, rustic mills, and mountain valleys are especially attractive when executed in the relief style of woodcarving. This guide features 32 patterns and step-by-step instructions for carving them. How to map out levels in a pattern, trace pattern levels onto the blank, work roughed-out levels, and carve texture for foliage and buildings are explained with accompanying illustrations to clarify each technique. Also included are ways to create three-dimensional foreground elements and dry brush finished carvings with oil paints.
