The final stage of Thursday’s drawing project is where drama of moving clouds took center stage and the change from week two to today was dramatic. I loved working this piece . . .
Storm Clouds, charcoal (9×12) was drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper using vine and compressed charcoal, tortilium, artist brush, felt and a kneaded eraser. The entire process for developing the clouds was through the build up of many, many layers by putting charcoal on and taking it off over and over again. The middle land mass was knocked back a bit and made smaller in scale, so as not to loose the focal point. The key to this drawing was managing the values to give depth and movement.
Nature gives us moving art in the form of clouds, a subject that has fascinated artists and photographers for generations. Thank you for staying with this project and checking in – click onto the image for a larger view.
