Angel Drawings

Among the different forms of art inspired by angels, angel drawings are one of my favorite. I love the beauty and simplicity of the lines, the heavenly nature of the subject, and the inspiration they provide.

I mainly love the wings. After all, we closely associate wings with angels. And wings are a very important characteristic of an angel drawing. It is almost its most salient point.

Angel DrawingAnother important trait of an angel-themed drawing is the angel’s face: for the most part, it is serene, filled with love and compassion. You will find pieces that stray from this concept. Some works I’ve come across portray faceless angels, angels made completely out of light, and sad angels - among other subjects.

Drawings of angels portray these divine beings in different situations. In most cases, angels are depicted as messengers, warriors, or protectors. Very often, the angel will be drawn all by itself. In some works you see a complete scene, at other times you will only see a simple sketch.

If you are looking for a special angel-inspired gift, consider giving an angel drawing. You will find several examples below.



Angels are spirits, flames of fire; they are higher than man, they have wider connections. ~ Matthew Simpson
