Today is the unveil of the final for Thursday’s drawing, a project that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working on for the past seven weeks bringing back many memories of my childhood and just for the love of wide-open water and lighthouses . . . no walking on the pier when it’s a windy day!
Sodus Point Lighthouse (Sodus, NY), a graphite drawing (12×9) was drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. Pencils used today were 4H, 2H, HB, B, 4B, a tortilium and a kneaded eraser for blending. Drawing involved cleaning up the horizon line, working in the lighthouse, and revamping the sky – an area that has bugged me since the beginning. I think the sky suits the scene much better, doesn’t steal the show but adds a bit of natural drama.
Thanks for checking in on the progress and following along – have a fantastic weekend.
