005-052 - Protection and Trust by sweetmarly 005-052 - Protection and Trust by sweetmarly
(3 Feb 2013) Week 5 of my 52 week drawing challenge. After all the green last week I wanted to do something in another colour. Black and white would not have worked for me.

The moment I saw the original photo I thought of "Trust". The original photographer called it "Protection". Whether you feel it invokes protection, trust, love or comfort....I leave that to your interpretation. Prismacolor pencils blue 901, 904, 905, 906 in a fine textured sketchbook.

The original comes from the very generous :iconsesam-is-open: and you can see the original here She has a fantastic profile page and gallery that is easily one of the most enjoyable I have seen.

This is really kind of you and I appreciate it.

The only picture I have which might be considered a Macro is this one [link] if you have room for it in your next month's feature.

I don't often get to work with blue but this one was fun.

Beautiful, I think that blue really suits both the theme of trust and protection, it gives me a serene feeling.

I think what drew me to the photo was that I came across it about the same time as the "Spirit Day" art challenge. The whole idea of Spirit Day was about the protection and love and trust and anti-hate. The original photo spoke to me in that way and I always wanted to draw it.

Thanks...everything I draw has some background to it. I wonder sometimes if I should put up the reason why I chose to draw something. What do you think? Most people don't read the descriptions.

I make an effort to read descriptions, so long as it is not an essay.
And I enjoy hearing what a artist has to say about their work.
