Art piece. Finished 6/2/2022. Started Feb 2022.
9×12 Strathmore Charcoal Paper with laid finish. Prismacolor artist pencils and oil pastels.
Images as follows: my original photographs used for references, googled images used as references, and finally progression of drawing.
Like the commissions I worked on this in just my spare time. I’m going to sit with it for a couple days, then, if satisfied, scan for reproduction and frame.
May you enjoy creative moments. May you find peace in your days. May life be colorfully wonderful always. May your creativity inspire active endeavors. Above all may you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.
** I decided after an afternoon staring at it, that I needed to revisit the background sky. I decided I didn’t like the gradient I did and thought it should echo the sky inside the shell to reinforce the title. So I’m almost done with the revision. I will update when complete.
I did have to add just a little oil pastel to finish the sky correction.
Readjusted background skyline, really done:
