Thursday Drawing, Gentle Compassion #2 Update

Forty-five minutes into my drawing and I realized I missed my 30 minute deadline – I could have kept right on going.

Because most of the page is light w/slight markings of a sketch I only took a photo of that part of the horse that I worked on.  Tools used were:  graphite pencils #4H, #2H, HB, #2B and #4B; and paper tortillium for blending.  I find that paper tortillium gives a rougher finish when blending and that’s basically what I’m looking for with a short-haired horse.  If I want to have really fine deep finish I can expect to do probably 3 or 4 applications of the process (apply pencil, blend, apply pencil, blend, etc.) to the entire subject – not sure, maybe will only do 2 applications on this first drawing to get a feel back for handling graphite.

Enough with excuses for where my drawing stands . . . here is the updated Gentle Compassion!

  1. This is really coming together. Art knows no time. It will take the time it needs to be created.

  3. no excuses necessary, amiga! wow, it is looking wonderful! this is going to be a beautiful drawing! i chuckled when you mentioned that you invested 45 minutes before realizing you had overshot your deadline! that’s like when i burn what’s cooking – i’ll be painting/drawing/whatever and will smell something and they dash for the kitchen! time does seem to vaporize!

      Thanks Lisa! You’re so funny, you know the feeling – I had that urge to dig in and keep drawing until it was done, but I had to stay true to my deadline tough putting the pencils down.
