Out yesterday cutting wood slabs. A lot of work goes into getting one of these ready, so having more of a plan when beginning to cut makes sense. Thought I could make drawings on paper, but doing the work in one shot does not seem to be how it is happening. I make the cuts, then look, photo, and bring into Photoshop to make edits. These edits then can be taken back to the work… recut, assemble.
So drawings… preliminary, in order to get a better sense of where I want to go. Ink drawings on paper can also be cut and rearranged. Or clay, which can be cut into, patched and recut, and is more in accord with the process in working with the wood.
