Wooden Sparrow

This is my first attempt at wood sculpture so I tried to keep the design simple and fun. I made some sketches of birds from a visit to the Natural History Museum and wanted to keep the detail of the feathers simplified. I used bass wood from a local art store and bought some carving tools. I finished the sparrow with some dark wood stain and a few coats of polyurethane to give it the glossy finish. It was fun to get away from graphite and oils for a while and hopefully I will do more in the future :)
