Here we are again and Thursday’s drawing is coming along . . . leaving the drawing alone for a week, gave me some time to consider the back line of the trees and how they were going to fit into the overall scene. I felt like the trees were encroaching on what will become the massive wave/splash and didn’t want to take away from the focal point.
Grand Slam, #2 update – charcoal, graphite and carbon drawing (9×12) is being drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. I don’t much like this paper for heavy applications of charcoal, because the texture is limited, so I may have to resort to spraying some fixative on the trees to develop them further.
This week the trees (drawn in charcoal) were knocked back on the right-side, some definition were given to them but for now the trees will be left alone until after the large splash/wave is completed, because I need some perspective of what the viewer will see once the water goes in. The boulders to the left and bottom of the scene were drawn in with graphite giving them a reflective quality, more values have to be worked on the entire mass of rocks, but again I want to wait until the water is drawn that will allow me to start wrapping the water around the middle rocks. I may close in the bottom left-hand corner of the rocks so they all connect – again I’ll wait and see but I’m leaning toward this change.
I love drawing rocks and could do this all day without a clue how much time has flown by, ops I see several areas to change with the rocks, but until next week. I think I’ll let it set for a while – the rocks will just keep on talking. Click onto the image for a larger view.
