Sandpipers

Here are a few images of a work-in-progress for the first module of my second year art degree. I will explain their purpose more thoroughly in a later post, but until then, some wooden sandpipers and the keyphrase “working in the environment” will have to suffice.

The 2cm long models were/are carved from scraps of wood with the aid of my dremel and sander tip. After further sanding, drilling, and inserting of wire, they were painted roughly with acrylic, using for the majority a drybrushing technique.

  1. These are so so so so so so so lovely. When you first said about it i thought they’d look better just in wood but they definately look better painted.

    Very impressed am i.
