Stony Face

My latest pages for the Arthouse Sketchbook Project..... faces made of stone.


Don't ask me why this fella is here amongst these stones because I don't know either!

Great sketches again, Cathy! I love the way you blended colours in both of them. The first face is so serene and mysterious too! As for the second sketch, I think pebbles are like clouds: you tend to "see" in them what is on your mind.
Good luck for the rest of your sketchbook, mine is coming to a close (though I'll have to think about the covers:I have no idea what I want to do with ithem !)

I like this idea, I need to get my thinking cap on for my sketchbook, I am over halfway there.

Gillian said...

More breathtaking work. How do you keep coming up with these ideas? I love the subtlety of the colouring on that top one, in particular - it really stands out. x

curiouscrow said...

These are just great - I've always loved the way you use colour.

Love these. The 2nd fella looks so sad lying there.

Beautiful drawings Cathy! Wow...the colorful shading is truly enchanting.

Alice Stroppel said...

I love the stoney face, wonderful.

Shirley said...

These are wonderful! You really captured the texture - they feel hard to me!

Lynn said...

These are great! I find rocks hard to do convincingly, but you did them perfectly.

Both drawings are lovely, my favorite is the top one.

Jim said...

Wow, really like that stone face on top!!

Love the stony face. Really cool. And the little face amongst the stones reminds me of a fantasy book a read a long time ago called the Onion Girl. Nicely done.

Hi Cathy, Did you know your return blog address has a typo in it? You left http://cathyholtomdustylane.blogpot.com/ as your address. It took me to a religious site of some sort. In any case, notice the "blogpot" rather than "blogspot".

In any case, I enjoyed looking through your recent posts. I particularly like your stone face; it looks so sculptural! And, your herb garden is inspiring!

They are both so beautiful and delicate! The first one reminds some precious art piece coming from the past, the second drawing looks funny!

Chrissy said...

I suspect your sketchbook project is looking fantastic now. I do like the face in the stones, lets be honest you can see them almost everywhere on occasion :)
