Horoscope Star Sign Art

Aries forms part of a horoscope star sign art series which I am working on. Astrologywhilst not necessarily provable, is a fascinating subject area for an artist.

This artwork began as part of a project using the same facial dimensions for different portraits. No other pre-planning was involved. The process then developed randomly and organically. What began randomly soon began to develop structure. In this case, symmetry.

I also hint at duality of personality. Aries personalities can be fire-like and yet they have other opposing characteristics. If you are familiar with the Aries Star-sign, you might also recognise some of the other ideas hinted at in this illustration.

The Artwork

Astrology Drawing

Working with fine -tipped pencils, the detail in this artwork took many hours to build up.  Above is a shot of the artwork as it is taking shape..

As with other coloured-pencil artwork which I create, I use top quality Caran D’Ache Luminance pencils. These pencils have a guaranteed lightfastness not equalled by other pencil manufacturers,. The finished artwork is sealed with a top quality fixative.

Medium: Lightfast pencil

Dimensions: 21 x 29 cm
