It’s been a great drawing day because I had enough time to complete Waiting . . . it took three hours to work on the Heron and several last touches on the water and sea-foam.
Waiting was drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum (9×8). Graphite pencils for their reflective power (4H, 2H, HB, B, 3B and 6B) were used on the sky, rocks and water, and Carbon (B and 6B) was used for the Heron because it’s a softer lead and flat – my goal here was to create a 3-D look so the Heron didn’t blend in to the background water. Blending tools were tortilum and a tiny piece of felt.
Thank you for sticking with the project over these last eight weeks – it was an exciting subject to draw. Who knew that water could be represented so well with graphite?
