Thursdays Drawing: Waiting, a pictorial of the process

My favorite time for Thursdays drawing, I get to compile the process of drawing Waiting in a series of photographs.  Here you are able to see the changes and progress made as the scene unfolded.

I hope you enjoy and thank you for sticking with the process ~

    Mary every time I return here there is an amazing treat. I love the way your mind develop each subject and the great chalenges you give yourself and always win in flying colours 🙂 xx

  5. I love it!! 😀 It’s been a pleasure to follow this development, I really love this scene. Well done, Mary!

  6. Liked it so much that I’m following you now!

  7. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    We look at a picture and admire the subject but rarely think of the process behind the final image. This illustrates the artistry behind the work needed to create such terrific pieces.

    I love this part, too. It would almost make a flip book. 🙂 Remember those?

    Gosh that looks fantastic. And I love the second-last picture where there was only the outline of the bird so it looked like a ghost… surreal.

  10. Maria says:

    Can’t wait to see your next subject!!!

  11. Marcus Case says:

    This is so cool to see how it all happened. P. S. I must apologize for inadvertently titling my painting the same. Sometimes I’m so dense. I have changed my title. Please forgive me.

      Hi Rhonda, thank you very much for your comment. Please don’t worry about titling your painting the same, go for it – can you just imagine how many titles are the same with the thousands of artists of today and past. You are too nice – have a fantastic weekend.

  13. Flawless progression with the most beautiful result! Thanks for sharing is exiting to see from start to finish!

  14. As I’ve said before, it’s so interesting to be able to see the whole process in stages… 🙂

  15. oh my goodness! what a difference the finale makes! those strong darks really makes everything pop!

    great work, as always! lisa/z

  16. Leya says:

    now this is so interesting – to follow the process! Lovely ending – truly beautiful.

  17. Love it! Any reason you decided to go black and white? Just curious

      Thank you Youngearthart for your nice comment. Yes, it’s all in graphite pencil and carbon pencil – didn’t want to disturb the visual of B&W with colored pencil. It really was an experiment to see if I could get certain effects with the water. Thanks again ~

  18. So great to see your progress all at once. Amazing work.

  19. Doris says:

    you inspired me

  20. The final is beautiful – I loved being able to follow the process!
