Thursday Drawings, Water Veil #10

I love Thursdays, drawing for 30 minutes is my way of relaxing and letting go – the pencil guides m, does its thing and I’m just a willing participant.

Today I began working on the bottom left-side.  The rocks for the most part are wet and only the right-side of the rocks have a bit of flowing water touching them.  It’s great to just let the character (bumps, crevices and textures) of the rocks reveal itself – there is very little that one can do to hurt this process.  Using 4H, 2H, HB, B, 2B and a bit of 3B.

      Hi Annie, thank you – pretty slow and steady, right? The trick will be pulling the water out and flowing in front of the rocks. That’s what I think about every time I work on this drawing.

    Love watching this evolve. Such a discipline you have going.

      Thanks Craig for checking in. I have to say 30 minutes flies by, I’m seriously considering increasing my drawing time to one-hour – we’ll see. Until next week!
