The challenges of wood carving

 

I’ve been working on a relief carving of a Thames barge for a while. I had a dark patch under the bowsprit. Unfortunately I needed to deep it a touch, and in doing so a knot below crumbled. I now need to work out a way to patch it which is in keeping with the design, is achievable and will be sufficiently robust.
