Thursdays Drawing – Majesty of Grace, #3

I had to give up on working any further on Majesty of Grace – with every minute it got darker and darker out.  So next week I’ll set aside time in the morning to finish the drawing up, there is a lot of refining to do.

Majesty of Grace (6×9) is drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper, using graphite pencils (4H, 2H, HB, and 3B) and blending with a stump and tortilium.  Sorry the photograph isn’t more clear, it was much too dark to take a picture but didn’t want to miss my Thursday drawing obligation.

Thanks for checking in  .  .  .  click onto the image for a larger view.

    Lovely work. I feel your pain that was me yesterday.

    I have been down by the ocean today; it looked like this in places. Waves are so captivating.

  4. It’s coming into his own so nicely, love the energy, power and the strength of the wave! Hardly can wait to see the finished scene with the sun picking through the waves!

      Thanks Eva – now the real work begins, stepping back and seeing what reveals itself. I was telling Cynthia below, that I didn’t even realize how dark it got outside while I was drawing (too focused, I’d say) so there are several areas now that are screaming at me to pay attention and go back in and fix it.

  5. This is so absolutely beautiful. I of course am drawn to ocean scenes.

  6. The dark is catching up on us, all of a sudden!

    • Mary says:

      Yes and you guys experience it earlier than us – I didn’t even realize I was drawing in the dark! Talk about focus – now I have to go back and work out some areas. Have a lovely weekend Cynthia!

    Daylight saving time is not a good thing. It should be discontinued.
