Orphéo, Dog Portrait Marquetry
I loved that picture of my sister’s dog and decided to create a marquetry panel for her. Unfortunately by the time I was done (2009) the dog sadly died…
The picture was made piece by piece (classicle method) in 4 layers, I tried again to use contrasting wood and grain direction more than sand shading that I secluded to the tongue. I should have added some to the fit or contrast more the woods as it is a little to flat for my test.
The background was cut to the maximum size the Chevalet can handle
