When I was visiting relatives in Wrexham (North Wales), I spotted a stone head on the lawn near the library. It was decorated with mosaic. As I try not to plagiarise, I decided to draw the outline of the head and then draw it as though it was built with stones, sort of dry-wall style.

I am now offering this for sale as view cards.

Here is the photo I used for this drawing (I took it myself so there are no copyright issues) and I ask you to consider whether I do straight copies or, as I believe, I add some of my own style to the finished picture.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    This is fantastic dave, there is so much detail put into this. How large was the real one ?

    Great work, Dave. I love the lines and pattern radiating out from the head. No one draws better than you do.

  • You are very kind.

    fine drawing so well done,you missed you vocation by a hundred and twenty years drawing for news papers in the 1880,s or around that time in history masterfully drawn

  • I used to draw for the newspapers back in the 1880s, but now I am almost 150 years old I thought I’d take a break :)

    Psychedellic stuf, Dave. It moves and crawls into my brain. The highlights on the stones make the mask so vivid. Love the great white spot in the middle. The pattern on the ground is absolutely mind blowing.

  • Thank you for your kind words. I am very late in replying, so accept my apologies.
