Topic: Hymnal Art
One group I belong to is illustrating a hymn to go with every book of the bible as we work ourselves through the year. Today we are up to the book of Nahum.
The hymn assigned to this book is Rock of Ages.
I found several paintings where a woman was hanging onto a stone cross as it was being lashed by a stormy sea and I got the idea to make the cross from stacked stones rather than the solid carved version used in the paintings.
I also left off the woman and the sea to keep it simple.
I have three sets of gray colored pencils in several shades each. One set is true gray, one set leans toward the blue and one set toward the brown.
As I look at the photo I see that my perspective is off by a bit as it goes down the rignt lower side, but It is standing solid in my mind.
Where the text crossed over the notes it was a bit hard to distinguish the lines so I used a bit of white gel pen to blot out the background a bit.
