I've been spending some time working on some new constrruction and assembly techniques in may last few pieces. Rather than building the whole unit, for this piece, I cut, routered and painted the foot ledge, frame, upper ledge and top cornice separately. I then assembled them into the whole, added the insert, background, crab and details.
I thought it worked pretty well, as it allows me to not have to deal with small nooks and crannies and other hard to reach (paint) areas. I believe it speeds up the process of completing work so I look forward to advancing my process even further.
Reverent (s'áaw) is an early work of a new series I've been contemplating.
