The Grave of William Warner by MorganCrone The Grave of William Warner by MorganCrone
A grave monument at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia, PA.

Drawn in graphite, background is painted with ink washes and off-white thinned acrylic.

This was done on VERY short notice after I had been contacted about a book being published for the 175th anniversary of Laurel Hill Cemetery and this is one of my favourite statues.

Amazing work! I am not a great art critic, but this is so darn good it really should be in that book!

You should see the sculpture in person, she's about 5 feet tall.

Thank you, I love sepia tones but don't use them nearly enough.

I don't likes browns at all but I always liked sepia, it's the only brownish colour I can stand. My wedding colours were tones of ivory and sepia :)

Thank you!
I know you've seen my photos of this one but you should see it in person, it's all life size, the lady is actually a little taller then me, maybe 5'1" or 5'2" but they're on a pedestal so over all it's quite tall.

Thanks!
She is one of my favourites too, her and Harriet as I call her, the lady opposite this one in the Warner plot. Also the woman with the book on the lower level.

This is quite small due to the time restraints I was given and being it was only graphite it should have not taken nearly as long as it did. I admit I was rather intimidated by this to start, it's been far too long since I worked with graphite other then sketchy outlines.
I did have 3 photos at different angles I was working from so that was a big help with the lady figure anyway, at least the face.
