Purple Myrtle [Apr 2023] get a link to this artwork

myrtle, maple
[2½" diameter x 8½" high]
I really like how this figurine turned out. The myrtle wood used for the body scorched in a very interesting manner when I used my torch on it and working purple watercolor paint into the pores gave an interesting texture to the colored areas. The hair is maple, scorched with my torch and dyed purple with Transtint dyes.
