I love the contrast of taking the delicate image of an Angel and setting it on fire! I don’t mean that in any sort of blasphemous way, instead I see it as a challenge to unite two things you wouldn’t naturally associate. These woodburnings demonstrate my attempts at taking a softer, more lovable approach to my pyrography.
I used photos of statues as reference. This was helpful because the sculpture already had to be chiseled in and I could get a good idea of what lighting and shadows would do, making it easier for me to decide how much or little to burn.
