Thursdays Drawing – Waiting #4

I’m rushing now, trying to meet the deadline of the day – plus our temps are at 101 and my flowers are screaming “water me.”  So without any fanfare,

Here is the latest addition of Waiting (12×9) drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper, using graphite #HB, B, 4B.  Work still to be done are the two main waves and Egret (have to remove the frisket, arggg – hope those areas survived).  I can’t tell you how much I love working on this scene – it is so darn relaxing and peaceful.  While I can’t be at the sea today, the drawing takes me there and let’s me linger at the oceans’ edge.

Have a wonderful evening and thank you for checking in on Waiting.

Waiting, #4

  1. Gorgeous, Mary! I feel cooler already. It’s the perfect summertime project. Say, have you ever watched “The Midnight Sun” twilight episode (1961)? It’s about a painting. No spoilers here!
    Have a productive week!

      Hello Theadora – lovely comment, thank you very much! No I haven’t watched it, but I’m thinking perhaps I should check it out. Have a great week!

      Thanks so much Poppy, glad you’re enjoying the process – it will be interesting to drawing sea foam on the waves. I’m excited to get started on that part of the drawing. Will be 102 today and temps drop to mid-90’s this weekend (nice break) and Monday back to 103 – TX weather (even squirrels calm right down and take afternoon siesta’s in the afternoons, lol).

    How lovely to be able to imagine you are by the sea when the temperature soars around you.

    That egret has become very ghostly, talented Mary … [grin]

  9. What a wonderful, soothing painting, looking forward to seeing your finished piece. I’m sure your frisket will come of just fine.
