Creation by Mimicry

I tried my hand at some animal silhouettes, again.
I made some before for a baby shower on wood rounds, (above)
but wondered if the idea would look better on a small scale.
The cheap wood doesn't have any character.
I'm considering painting a background color that pops, 
but I guess I should have done that first.
I don't love how they turned out, but Peter does.

I think that if silhouettes are done with precision and care
then they feel as if there is depth.
Here are some pieces that make me want to try again.
