Majesty of Grace finally comes to an end today – what a trip and one worth taking.
Majesty of Grace, 6×9, drawing was done on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper (smooth side) using graphite pencil (4H, 2H, HB and 2B). All blending was done with a stump for a smooth (but not the smoothest) appearance, wanted to show some roughness of a turbulent sea. Values played a large role in making the incoming booming wave and splash come alive. The highlights were achieved with keeping white space white, but also moving a kneading eraser strategically to create sea-foam and sun sparkles. I was going to add a few gulls, but decided to keep the original intent, illustrating the power of a wave.
Thank you for sticking with the project – hope you have a great weekend. Click onto the image for a larger view of details.
A wonderful artist and photographer, Ruth Archer of pmp, took a great reference shot that I based my drawing off of.
