Timeout for Thursdays’ Drawing, very happy that a lot of progress was made on Waiting, next week the waves and sea-foam will be started.
Today I spent time cleaning up the entire base of water and finished the rocks. Mostly it was all about refining values, making sure they were dark enough to create depth and but also to illustrate believable wet rocks using 4B graphite [which is reflective] on the wet sides of the rocks. The surface is Strathmore Bristol – Vellum drawing paper.
Next week I finally get to remove some of the frisket (fingers are crossed it doesn’t stick to the paper) to draw the waves and sea-foam, a magnifying glass is going to come in handy – easier to do up-close work on tight spaces. I’m looking forward to the next stage of drawing on this piece – it’s where the rubber meets the road.
Thanks for checking in ~
