The art of fish carving has experienced a rapid growth of popularity and appreciation over the last few years. There are probably lots of reasons for this. My own interest came from a love of nature and the beauty of these creatures. They offer the carver the same challenge for fine detail and form that bird carvers have known for years, and there is an endless variety of species and poses, which leaves much room for creativity. Rick Roth leads the carver step-by-step through three fish and pond life carvings: The Brook Trout, the Pumpkin Seed, and a Northern Painted Turtle. Each step is clearly illustrated with a photograph and a description of the technique. The painting sections are illustrated in full color with color palettes. In all there are over 800 step-by-step photographs plus drawings and palettes. He uses a combination of power carving, traditional carving, and woodburning to bring life to his carvings. His painting techniques add the final touch of realism. While challenging to the novice, this book makes the carving of fish and pond life an enjoyable, fulfilling adventure.
