Today was the final workout for Takakkaw Falls and I’m happy to say that the drawing has been completed ~
Takakkaw Falls, a graphite drawing (12×9) was done on Bristol Vellum paper using two graphite pencils 2H and HB, for blending a tortilum, a kneaded eraser and a Pentel click eraser. The erasers were key to building, subtracting and rebuilding layers of graphite for the waterfall. I’m a bit disappointed that I was unable to utilize the Sfumato (smoke effect) within the drawing, it’s not that it wouldn’t work in this scene – I need more practice to achieve the look I’m after. So the technique will be used another time.
The wolf, as you know, made an appearance early on in the drawing and was a neat addition to the overall scene. The natives of the Canadian region where this waterfall is located would appreciate his role in looking after the Falls.
Thank you for checking in on this project – it was another fun scene to develop with the amazing graphite pencil. Click onto the image for a larger view.
