Title pending. Graphite on paper. 2012. (Unfinished)
I have a fascination with the skull and with bones & a fascination for the loveliness of feathers. I am using my hand as a model; also drawing the feathers from an actual one. It’s a lot of work to render the separate barbs (represented by the lines in the feathers) and to render the wispy downy feathers growing out of the calamus (the quill). I can’t duplicate what God has done in all His mathematical Genius, but the skull, feathers & hand are looking quite good so far!
