Merlin- Marquetry 60/40 cm completed 2012. taking 3 months to complete. This marquetry work shows merlin summoning the forces of Albion. I used mahogany veneer for the background. For merlin’s hair & beard orange wood was ideal to portray grey ageing hair. pear wood for the skin . The main emphasis in this work was to create fine texture for the hair & beard , achieved with the delicate use of the fretsaw. French polish was applied for the finish.
