Bittern in-process photos

Here's some pictures of the bittern I've been working on. The final bird will be carved from tupelo and painted in artist oils.

I'm starting to build up a form to put clay on to get a feel for the pose I want to carve.

Now that I'm happy with the pose I've modeled, it's time to carve it out of wood.
