With renowned carver Harold Enlow as your teacher, both beginner and advanced carvers will learn expert techniques to produce a realistic Cowboy carving. Cowboy caricatures have a long history in America, dating back to the classic work of Andy Anderson, who is credited as one of the earliest American caricature carvers. Even today, broken-down cowboys find their way into almost every carving competition. As with most caricatures, the success of the carving depends on a blend of realistic and exaggerated features. Most good caricature artists know how to create a realistic face in order to do a good caricature, and it doesn’t take much to turn a realistic carving into a caricature. On this cowboy, the ears are a little oversized and the teeth are slightly larger than normal. Both of these features give the carving a fun and happy look. Kit contains a high-quality, hand-cast wood stained resin study stick detailing seven carving progressions, as well as a 32-page instructional booklet with step-by-step instructions and coordinating photography, making this a must-have addition to your woodcarving library! Comes carefully wrapped and packaged in a durable, high-impact shipping tube for worry-free delivery.
