Thursday Drawings, Gentle Compassion #4

Wow, just made it for Thursday Drawings.  Here is the latest, #4,  update on Gentle Compassion.

I’m working my way down the horse’s snout, still applying my first layer of graphite and expect next week’s 30 minutes will see the horse 1st application completed and will begin the 2nd layer of graphite.  After that I’ll begin the man’s sleeve, then his hand and finally the background.

Here you go . . .

  1. It’s starting to come to life. How fantastic !

  2. You are amazing and patient, dear Mary! Every time I see your drawing, I visualize that background, which makes the blaze ‘pop’ — I admire your patience and appreciate the beauty as your image builds strength. Strong work and buen trabajo!

      Ah Lisa, you are too kind. I’m starting to see some areas that are really going to need some clean up. The horse and hand/fabric will be done in graphite – since the graphite tends to give a little bit of a sheen, I was thinking about maybe doing the background in charcoal – as that will be a different effect. We’ll see ~

    So delicate Mary.. you make each pencil mark absolutely count . He is emerging beautifully .

    • Mary says:

      Hi Poppy, it should. Yesterday I was kind of rushing through the process and I could see/feel a loss of control. So I might increase the 30 minutes to 45 so I give myself time to mentally be fully engaged. I’m anxious to get the background done, it will showcase the white patch of hair much better – all in time I guess. Thank you so much, appreciate your encouragement.

    For me (a non-artist), it’s especially interesting to see the stages and progress. I had no idea what all was involved. Your creativity is inspiring!

    • Mary says:

      Hi Cyndi, thank you! I’m getting frustrated because I just want to have a real go and not just 30 minutes at a time. It takes me a good 5 minutes to get into the flow – I might just do that when I get to the second layer.
