Weeping Angel - Sketch - WIP by Katerina-Art Weeping Angel - Sketch - WIP by Katerina-Art
12 x 9 pencil
"Weeping Angel" work on progress of an angel artwork i started with 9/11 in mind, based on the sculpture by William Wetmore Story which serves as the grave stone of the artist and his wife at the Protestant Cemetery, Rome.

I used two references and put them together for this drawing one of myself and one of the statue from a different angle.

Because of my current moving situation i don't think i will finish this in time for the 9/11 memorial , i will try my best, but wanted to show you all the sketch and despite most of my art stuff being in boxes i'm still working on projects when i can especially pencil work which is easier to keep out and work on.

FINISHED DRAWING

:( i cant believe 10 years went by sometimes it feels like it happened yesterday and others an eternity ago, i feel bad for not being able to do this tribute in time due to me moving i even missed the ceremony i had no Internet or TV connection, after 9/11 passed i lost inspiration for this artwork and a lot of drawings took me a while to really want to get back to my art even though i did some things here and there, but i want to finish it when i get a chance it was half way done.

Awwwwwwwwww..... This work is really amazing, for two cause!
First, for your throught to 11th September.... Looks a lot how you feel sad for what happened....
I think the rest of the world don't think a lot for this fact, me for first.... But that day, all the world was stopping for a moment just when happened this.
Sadly, a lot of people now think for it as a bad fact, and have hate for other people... Is hard to write in english, but i think you understand it... :(

I think you choice a perfect "model" for this work.
Also is a WIP, it's look a lot how much love and emotions you put on this, and this is really wonderful from you! :heart:

I visit the Protestant Cemetery ( i also put two photo of Angelo Del Dolore: [link] :: [link] ), and i think i look it for about 15 minutes, in silence.
I wish to you've an occasion for to see in real this statue, because, trust in me, is really hard to write how emotions i feel in that moment. :heart:
In real looks so little than you image, but also if is "hide" between trees, statue and cats! Yes... That cemetery is full of kitties: [link] <--another photo, sorry, eh eh... They're guardian of Cemetery, and people take care of they... Is a very wonderful throught.

Sorry for long comment.... ^^;

I hope to have it done by 9/11 memorial but b/c of my moving situation dont know if i will , but sometimes in September i should, I'm so happy you like it , i really wanted to do something special for the 10th year memorial and have always chose angels for themes. I loved your pics left you comments there and hope one day to visit Rome and see it in person :heart:
