Thursdays Drawing, Water Veil #3

I’m so embarrassed having missed last weeks’ drawing time, with the competition looming I wasn’t able to draw as I would have hoped.  This week was another story so today I added another 1/2 hour to makeup for last week.

Today the stones in the upper-right corner were worked on.  I can see many areas of what I have drawn to-date that will need blending, shadows and highlights corrected and/or enhanced.  As the stones develop bumps, crevices, shadows have started to reveal themselves.  I love that part of working on textured subjects because that means the work guides me, and with this drawing I feel that I’m on the right track.

Next week I’ll continue to work on the stones in the top-half of the scene, taking a dramatic shift from the value range scale – since the portion of stones under the water veil will be extremely light and blurred to account for falling water in front of the stones.

Two photographs:  close-up view and the full scene providing an idea of scope.
