Thank you so much, Brenda!...ah the story, the way I see it is..Someone somewhere is saying a prayer which awakens the soul of this lady from her tombstone statue....the surprised look on her face is the realisation that she has come back to earth as an Angel

Lovely work, especially on the stonework. I know how hard coloring stone can be, especially in colored pencil. Her expression really makes me want to know the deeper story!

Beautiful! Love the statue, and love the wings. I wish I'd put some more "life" int he last set of wings I drew! Wink

somerset's picture

Ha thank you, Erika! the figures in this one where a little smaller than usual and after being photographed and reduced for the computer screen the Angel's face has lost a bit detail and tone, still I hope it has still captured your likeness and that wonderful expression of yours? I'm so glad you like it!

I certainly look surprised, and I shoudn't because this piece is great. No one should expect any less from James McPartlin Master Portraitist. Smile

And once again thank you, Rita! I took this pic in the open air, I think the natural light helped with the details!

Ha thank you so much, Nell, you are so sweet!

somerset's picture

And from me to you, Uwe, thank you very much!

somerset's picture

Thank you, Matthew! The idea started out with her being released from the statue, and the awareness she feels realising she has been miraculously transformed into this Angel....possibly through the power of prayer?

somerset's picture

Thank you, Rita, you have made my day!

somerset's picture

Thank you, Scott, yeah thanks to Erika for that wonderfull expression!
