How does one capture the likeness of a stone? Do you paint the face? If so, which face?
Do you catch it in an informal pose or try to do a more conventional portrait?
Do we depict our subject in a natural setting or go for a more poised monumental look?
Does the artist aim for structural realism or try to capture something of the ethereal feeling of the stone?
Surely we can find some impression of the stone that feels right? Perhaps as a relief painting?
In my watercolour I attempted to catch the essence of what my stone was thinking.
I should have gone purely abstract I guess.
