Work continues on Takakkaw Falls for Thursday’s Drawing project ~
Takakkaw Falls, graphite drawing (12×9) is being drawn on Bristol Vellum paper with 2H and HB pencils, using a kneaded eraser and tortilum for blending. Today’s work was spent mainly on developing the trees with the intention to build the trees with enough bulk so they are substantial enough in size and value that they hold their own against the falls, but also to balance out bottom portion of the drawing with the rest of the scene – I want them to hold their own. While they aren’t the focal point they play an important role in creating interest aside from all the rock and water, and to eventually provide the perspective of the sheer size of the falls. In addition the far-right side of the waterfall was worked on.
Next week the trees will continue to be added on and developed, and then it is smooth sailing to the finish. Thanks for checking in – click onto the image for a larger view.
