Veiled


Drawing casts is a traditional method of learning to draw form.  All kinds of sculpture is used to draw from and good lighting helps the artist create the play of light and dark that gives the piece shape.

This is a form of gargoyle found on many buildings, little heads with various expressions that populate churches, cathedrals and buildings of importance.

This is a quick sketch done at lunch today that will be turned into a drawing.  I have vowed to produce several complete drawings this year and this will be one of them.  I think I hear charcoal calling for this one...

I love gargoyle spotting, they are so much fun. Your sketch a day project is great.. I keep thinking what will come next?

They are fascinating, I agree. And yes, the sketching subject is a surprise to me too until it happens!
