Today I was finally able to start on my new Thursdays Drawing, as revealed earlier last week in a sketch.
Grand Slam – #1 (9×12) is being drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum. I finally decided to use three types of medium: charcoal for the trees in the background, beginning of the water coming in to shore, and part of the big splash; carbon to deepen the darks in the trees and water; graphite to do the rocks on the left side and middle of the drawing, and some of the wavelettes. Fixative was applied to the splash to keep it clean while I work the other areas, as the splash will be the last part of the drawing to be worked on.
For today, the initial layers of the trees were worked out – I expect it will probably take several more layers to get good value structures and more definition. This drawing will most likely take several weeks to complete – today’s work took one hour.
Thank you for checking back, see you next week Thursday as work will resume on the trees and initial layers of rock will be put down. Click onto the image for a larger view.
