Soul Catcher, color pencil version 1
by Kelley Hensing
This piece is from a series in progress exploring the beauty and decay of life. Our lives are rich with memories which creates a perception of identity. As the perils of age overcome us our thoughts grow tangled and fleeting.
I’ve created a few different versions of this image, it’s transformed itself slightly with each rendition. (Fitting with how memories work.) In the piece available here I’ve created the image on dark gray paper using color pencils, white chalk and gold paint. There are a few other variations planned using this style, this being the first. The gold paint on the crown and embellishments is reflective when the lighting is at the right angle to catch it. The final version will be in oils and in a different color palette, on view at IX con coming up this October.
image size: 10.5 x 13.5
frame size:17.5 x 21.5
Frame picks up tones in the piece, and is matted and signed.
