Re: What's On My Bench: Heads

Hi JIm,
Don't see that much wrong with your carving. The carved face is more in keeping with caricature, is that what you are after ? The difference between caricature and realistic is the proportions of the face, eg, the eyes are in the middle of the head height, the mouth is usually the length of the space between the eyes, the top of the ear is in line with the brow and so on. You can verify this with gazing at your wife's face, and yours too, in the mirror. I study faces of people in everyday situations to learn details, being careful not to stare too long ! You should continue with wood carving, the basics are there already.
Cheers,
Gus
