Thursdays drawing project is coming along – today was spent in starting the beginning development of the pine trees in the foreground, as well as . . .
Takakkaw Falls is a graphite drawing (12×9) on Bristol Vellum paper using 2H and HB graphite pencils. A tortilium and a kneaded are two tools being used to move and blend the graphite. As mentioned the pine trees are just beginning to show, mostly they will be developed with squiggly lines, a tortilum to blend, the kneaded eraser to kind of blot out sections and then I start the drawing process all over again. It’s a way to draw full pine trees with some depth and in this case they need to come more forward than the slabs of rock. Rocks on the lower-right-side are beginning to be drawn in. The waterfall is starting to take shape as well.
Notice the wolf, he has been worked on – taking shape and becoming slightly more dominant to the piece. I decided if he’s going to be in the drawing, might as well play a supporting role. My first time drawing a wolf ~ I think I’ll leave well enough alone.
Thanks for checking in. Next week work will continue on the left-lower corner of the rocks and all the foreground trees will be completed. Click onto the image for a larger view.
