Last Thursday was Thanksgiving and because it was a holiday I took the day off from drawing, I felt guilty. Today I spent two hours allowing myself some headway on Water Veil.
I worked on the right-hand side of the foreground rocks and made good progress on what will be the main rock and star of the show. I’m hopeful that next week I should finish drawing the base of the rock and start work on adding and adjusting values (this rock has a lots of character). Graphite pencils used were: 4H, 2H and HB.
Here’s is my confession, I love drawing rocks. There is a certain freedom in working the different shapes and sizes, and let’s not forget those things that give them character – crevices, veins and craggy edges. Time flew by and if I didn’t look up, I’m sure I would have gone straight through three hours.
Hope you are having a great day, it went from 77 degrees yesterday to a balmy 35 degrees with rain, sleet and ice on its way – the cold temps are expected to last for days. Reminds me of our time in Maine.
