I carved this panel in oak and limewood. It is part of a panelled room I made for a client.
The client wanted a scene depicting their German pointers.
The panel itself is oak and the dogs and birds are in the lighter limewood.
I did this for two reasons, one because it helped to give a subtle contrast and two because the lime wood holds fine detail much better than the oak.
The panel was around 10" wide so the detail was quite small.
