Grand Slam has been a really enjoyable project to work on these past five weeks – it was a first for me to combine charcoal and graphite in a seascape and was surprised to find how easy the process was. I’m happy to present the final workout of Grand Slam ~
Grand Slam, charcoal/graphite drawing (9×12) on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper was completed today with making a few minor changes and additions to the crashing waves, darkening the left-side and foreground rocks where the splashing water is hitting them, working the incoming water and putting some finishing touches on the background trees.
My goal with drawing this scene was to give the viewer a sense of the seas power and energy – a place where natures thunder quiets our voices and takes us down a path that is greater than ourselves.
Thank you for checking in and following along with the project ~ check onto the image for a larger view.
