Time out for drawing – it’s Thursday and my 1/2 hour grew to 2 hours once again as work steadily gained steam to complete this drawing.
Waiting (8×9) drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper is being completely done with graphite pencils (today’s pencils used, HB and 3B) and the smallest sized tortilium for the sea-foam of the waves. Again I had no issues removing the frisket on the large foreground wave – my luck still holds out (yeah!).
Worked on a couple of specific areas: the very back water was lightened somewhat – pushing it back, the horizon straightened, the area to the right of the back wave needed to converge smoother with the incoming back water, the mid-water in front of the back wave (added more graphite to deepen the water by darkening it), began to work on the large foreground incoming wave and sea-foam. There is a lot more work to do on this wave/sea-foam to make it look sharp, but natural to its environment.
Next week the Heron will be added and final work on the water scene. And, guess what that means? Waiting will be finished next week – this was one exciting project for me to take on.
Thanks for checking in ~
