Alpine Ibex in progress 23
Busy with details, making deep holes in the rocks to create more shadowlines, going more into the dept near the looking goats, cleanig up the carving. It's playing with light , shadow and perspective lines. To get the shadow under de front rocks they are positioned to the front on top. The mountains on the background are carved to the back to cach the light. The bottom of the carving has almost the dept of the thicknes of the piece of wood. In this way you can use the dept of the wood several times.
5-6-2017 changed photo after carving a lot on the looking goat and making more holes in the rocks.I am thinking about to take down some rocks in the part behind the looking goat to create more dept in the middle of the situation

Roe stags
Roe stags found when looking for them in a period of 38 years. Mostly found one just when start looking (within a hour) or at the end of the walking. Once, when my youngest doughter was a baby and her grandfather came to watch, I had to go to the forrest. There I found two stags together but they where from the same side of two different young bucks. A quater of an hour after that I found the third stag. All within an hour.

Welcome to my gallery, look around. It are all hobby's.


In my gallery I try to show how some works grow. The best way is to imaging something that you want to make. Watch the wood and look if it is in the wood. Then you have to get it out of the wood by carving. During the carving it is possible that the structure of the wood you give another idee. Use it. Don't hurry because if the wood has gone, its done. Make a drawing and make it 3-D in wood.

Thanks all of you for the comment. Together with you it makes my art and my gallery for what it is.

Today, 10 sept 2014, the deviations were viewed 100.000 times WOW :-) thanks all of you!

My daily profession is appraiser for the property tax. My father was a professional woodcarver. I could watch how to do it. I could use his tools etc. Beside this I have a great affaction with nature. That's why i studied forrestry . I like hunting in the forrest as well with my eyes as with my gun. With all of this in my bag, I try to make realistic sculptures and paintings at the moments that it thickles.
