It’s Thursday and that means drawing. Time to reveal my next drawing project called “Veil of Water” for the lack of a better title, at least for now. Please don’t let the sketch drawing scare you off, I needed to see if it would be a subject that pencils would compliment and I believe it does.
The reference image is from photographer Craig Johnson, of pmp, whose work I’ve come to love. There is a level of sensitivity and serenity in his photographs – I have done a number of paintings (‘Dream’ and ‘Lakeview’ located in my landscape gallery) from his work already with more slated to paint later this year.
This particular subject is of a close-up of rocks located underneath and around the bottom of a small waterfall. The close-up really intrigued me, with wet rocks and falling water – both will be tremendous challenges for me to draw (yeah!). I think I’ve figured out what technique use for capturing the falling water, hopefully it works.
Now, don’t laugh – but here is my rough sketch. Next week will be the beginning of what I hope a successful drawing . . . have a great day.
It’s back in the studio to paint, 90% done on my first painting for the competition ~
