The Elder Intarsia Pattern
A distinguished Aussie Elder outlined against the setting sun.
A beautiful study in the use of light and shade. Who would think that light forehead and nose would work on this subject. But it does. The advantage of working on the design with a true artist
Although there seem to be a large number of pieces it's not that bad. Much of the hair and beard are made up from a small number of pieces which are then divided up into the smaller sections. This is an easy way to do things and gives perfect joins.€?€
Even if you're not an Aussie this makes for a dramatic project.
