Day 29: Head Metamorphosing into Rocks

New silverpoint drawing on gray-toned ground, created today:

Head Metamorphosing into Rocks by William T. Ayton, 2009. Silverpoint drawing on gray-toned card, heightened with white pastel pencil, 10" x 8". WTA087.

Heads emerging from or turning into geological formations is a consistent theme in my work. I might have been inspired in this by Mantegna, for whom rocky landscapes were a staple.

The number 87 in the lower left signifies that this is the 87th (more or less) finished silverpoint that I have created. This is an original drawing, not a print of any kind.

Price available on request. Please leave a message on this post, or email "info" "at symbol" "". Thanks.
