Excellent as always ma’am.
so noce thanks
Such a beautiful carving mam
Probably could have done better from a better pic and not really Grinling Gibbons style at all.
I would be interested in learning why this isn’t in the Grining GIbbons style…
The technique I use is how Grinling Gibbons carved, but I in no way want to claim this is to the delicate perfection that he was able to achieve. It would take much longer than what I could do in a video lesson 🙂
