A Squirrel and Deer at the Church

I’d made a good start on the squirrel, and had left myself only the tail to do after light work on the head and paws.


I finished off with some oak leaves, as though the squirrel was leaping through the boughs of an oak tree.

So, on to the deer. I was conscious of the fact that I had to carve St Patrick on the same trunk ~ so that he could be viewed from the church entrance ~ and therefore had to make sure the deer didn’t wrap around the trunk too much. It meant I had to truncate the deer a little from my drawing, but he still retained the sense of movement I wanted.



With the addition of some stylised ash leaves/branch, the deer was finished.
