Landscapes in Relief: Carving Techniques and Patterns

Landscapes in Relief: Carving Techniques and Patterns

by Lora S. Irish




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.
