What follows is the 18-week drawing process for Water Veil in panoramic view created by IrfranView.   My hope is this summary allows you to follow the development of the water scene.

  1. Do I remember right having watched the beginning? I didn’t expect such a marvel.
    It seems I thought about your drawing when I have been writing these lines

    there is one water
    looking with eyes of its choice
    if made visible

    There is only one
    water with many faces
    drawn by what veiled it

    Mary – This time-lapse summary will certainly prove to be a good educational tool for those not quite sure how to embark on this sort of thing. Splendid thing to make available. It also shows the merits of consistent self-discipline over months of work.

      Thank you Craig – this drawing was a piece that I got totally wrapped up in, very satisfying project. Hope you enjoyed the process, for me it was like witnessing rocks being born.
