Orchid W. Davis: My first woodburned tiger

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I remember woodburning this Tiger because it was against my will.

I was in Blue Ridge, GA  teaching a woodburning class. One of my students walked into the room and became enthusiastic about burning a tiger.  He had seen some of my reference photos.

I didn’t have a tiger pattern at the time and told him to go ahead and start from the photo.

That night I stayed up til two in the morning burning my version of the tiger you see in this post.

Was I tired the next day!

But the student appreciated my efforts and his final tiger piece was one of the best pieces of wood burning created in that class.

    • Thanks Ivan. More of my art and instruction will become available as I update this site. I’m working on my 3rd book, so you may also be interested in it when it comes out. Best, Orchid
