This wonderful sculpture over the doorway of McNeal Hall on the University of Minnesota campus always spoke to me as she hid under the vines of summer. She was part of a series based on the relationship of architectural sculpture to the building it inhabits and its meaning to the surrounding community.

I’ve worked a bit more on a drawing depicting architectural sculpture at the University of MN.
This was part of a series completed to demonstrate the importance of such sculpture to the people within surrounding communities. Our sense of heritage, humanity, and belief system is reflected in these forms.

- This is the second drawing in a series of pen & ink florals using textural gradation techniques. This one uses hatching which is comprised of hatch marks or parallel and counter parallel lines to create gradations. First is the contour: then the finished drawing using hatching to reveal the underlying form of the subject.

I recently posted three floral contours to be completed with the textural gradations of stippling, hatching , and scribble. Here is the first comprised of clusters of stipple marks that create dot like effects to support the contour. It is a time consuming, detail oriented endeavor, yet can also be completed in a looser more painterly manner.
