Image Aug. 28, 2017 When I'm not monitoring the flood waters I've been working on Gandalf's face. (He lives in Houston, Texas and Hurricane Harvey was running across his area.)
Image Aug. 29, 2017 Today was a big one. The sun made an appearance late in the day, and I could allow myself to believe our battle against flooding was over. For so many it won't be over anytime soon.
I was inspired to do more work on Gandalf. Shading and age line definition. A bit of rose on the bags under his eyes and the bulb of his nose.
Image Sept. 2, 2017 Gandalf the Grey is now Grey. Still have detailing to do.
Image Sept. 3, 2017 Except for some refinement around the bottom, and the wood base, I think he's done. I'm very excited about this. My fingers are crossed for the Regional contest later this month to be do-able. Arguably one of my new favorite pieces. 😊
