Here she is, my final second seascape in graphite and again I’m amazed at how rich a seascape can be developed with this medium.
Strands of Silk (6×9) was drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum using graphite pencils 4H, 2H, HB, B and 2B for their reflective qualities. The seagulls were done in carbon (a flat quality) keeping them in front of the waves. For the sea-foam spray some were drawn with dark and light values, and others (like the puffs of spray) were done with a kneaded eraser for larger and lighter spray. The back water was brushed out and layered back in several times with graphite to give that area of water a darker and richer feel.
Thank you for staying with the project and checking in.
