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.
This drawing is based off a fantastic photograph by Craig Johnson of pmp.
I am looking forward to see more of your drawing.

Thank you Nuno, some of this drawing is going to be experimental as I work through processes for inclusion of the falling water.
Such fine detail, Mary!
Thanks Elena, another long project I’m afraid!

Hi Marina, thanks ~ it felt good to slow down yesterday and get into a slow methodical routine. Drawing like this feels like rest and relaxation.
