A Shifty Little Chap


Watersoluble Graphite pencil and
coloured pencil.
















This is from my sketch book.  He is a gnome/gargoyle at Villa palagonia,
(Villa dei Mostri).  He looks a bit shifty to me!
I'm going to try and sketch as many as I can, but some are too high up to see.
As soon as we get some better weather I will get some more
photo's and sketches, althought the best time to go is just before the sun
goes down in the summer...the stone takes on a honey colour and the
shadows get deeper.

He isn't quite as friendly looking as my knitted Christmas gnomes!! I envy you your talent (if you see my octopus drawing you will know why!!!)
