Pyrography on pine with oil colour. 5 x 7
When some good friends gave me a calendar containing their beautiful photography including a great shot of a chickadee, I knew what I would give them as a return gift! This piece was made with a hobby wood burner primarily using a fine detail tip.
Chickadee is also is the first time I used oil pencils. I wanted to get the back lighting to make the bird ‘pop’, but didn’t want to go too dark on the background.
The oil pigment doesn’t entirely absorb into the wood so varnishing can cause the color to bleed a little. I only use color for accents in my pyrography so it hasn’t been an issue for me.
