Bones of the Herring 8" x 5"


This is great, Malcolm. I love the touches of colour in it. Super!

Thank you very much for that Mia much appreciated, I am often hesitant about using color in this type of work.

Love this pattern of walling Malcolm. You’ve got some great areas of shading to emphasise the depth of the area where the stones come together. Touch of colour looks good too.

Thank you for those comments Fiona much appreciated as always and thank you for the comment on the color, I am always undecided about using color on these drawings.

These are such works of art in themselves . I love the drawing which uses the shadows to describe the variation in the shapes of each stone .

Thank you Diana for your comments, especially about the shadows that is one of the things I like about doing these the challenge, apart from always having liked stone and rocks on mountains.

The latest in my series of the Dry Stone Walls themed drawings, this one is of a Herring Bone wall pattern that I found in Cornwall which you see a lot in the County, they are of all ages with varying roughness of stone types used. For once I have put a touch of color in as I just love Thrift or Sea Pink you find on the coast, I have it in my garden always.
