Today most of my drawing time was spent on developing the trees in the lower portion of the drawing ~ ah the drawing is getting very close to being completed.
Takakkaw Falls, #7 is a graphite drawing (12×9) on Bristol Vellum paper using 2H and HB graphite pencils along with, a kneaded eraser and a torilium. Most of the time was spent filling in the rest of the trees and developing their thickness and the appearance of a thick patch of trees (I can still see some areas that need a little more work). In addition the wolf was adjusted slightly to make his fur a bit more prominent and I went back into the rocks closest to the falls to toned down their darkness, so they don’t come forward this should allow the trees to be closer to the viewer.
Next week will be all about finalizing the waterfalls, in the drawing they are wider than the actual falls so time will be spent narrowing the sides and making sure they have the energy one would expect from a waterfall of this size. And then, perhaps the drawing will be completed – all depends on if anything else jumps out at me to be worked on.
Have a great weekend and thanks for checking in. Click onto the image for a larger size.
