Illustration Friday - 'Capture'

IF theme this week is Capture. So, here it is.


This is 30cmx30cm (12"x12"), oil on velvet. I did a series about the precious object and this is one of four to do with the 'trapping' of the precious gemstone within a rock. It's meant to deal with the theme of the beauty within. Below is the set of four together (not a great shot as it was taken with a camera phone at the time):

Beautiful images. One way or other, I think most of life's treasures are hidden or trapped and require some work if they're to be enjoyed. Yes?

My son loved the picis. He asked if they were real rocks and gems. Great job!

GREAT job! I know how hard it is to "capture" a mineral or fossil in paint. You did fantastic!
