Six Heads – Sketches in Pencil

For the first of a series planned to cover some of my personal interests in the visual arts, I am displaying some of my early pencil sketches which have as their subject the human head as depicted in well-known works of art.

The first four are all details sketched from works of Michaelangelo – the originals are all to be found within the Vatican City in Rome.  The 5th is the head of St.Jerome from Domenichino’s ‘The Last Communion of St. Jerome’,  also in the Vatican.  The last sketch is my own version of Shakespeare’s Sir John Falstaff.

The titles can be seen by hovering the mouse over the image.  Clicking on any single image will bring up an enlarged version, together with a carousel view of all the six drawings.
