Angel at Langley Cemetery

Nice to see all my sketcher friends at the Langley Cemetery for our weekly. They all produced outstanding work. And the weather was good.
I have been obsessed with this angel for a month or so. I've done numerous false starts in addition to three sketches. There's just something about her. She has a wistful expression and a longing in her attitude as she looks towards the sky. It's like she's in constant motion. Balanced by open wings, leaning forward to some future. Without a doubt, I'll be painting her again.
