Today is a day of rest from drawing. At the end of a drawing project I usually post a pictorial of the drawing process so you can see how the scene developed through the stages of drawing.
Here is Takakkaw Falls (graphite, 12×9) ~ you can see where dark values were backed off with a kneaded eraser and the base of certain details added back in. This adding and taking away process slowly continued as the rock and trees were developed. Can’t forget the wolf, look at all the changes he went through. Overall the drawing took about 26 hours to complete.
Have a great weekend!!

it is fascinating to follow your work, for each image there is something more! I like the wolf!
Thank you so much – this was an interesting drawing. Glad you enjoyed the series!
My favourite are #5 and #6 where we see the trees materialising out of thin air! 🙂
Very cool, thanks! Developing the trees was like icing on the cake when I got to this stage of the drawing.
Beautiful Mary. So much detail. Wow.
Thank you Joanna!

Fascinating how you block out the sections.
You have amazing skills and patience!!! Not sure how you do it. Love the wolf; what a perfect addition.
Thank you Laura for your comment and compliment on this drawing. It was a great scene to watch unfold, with the ultimate surprise – the wolf! Lots of fun and next week a new project begins. Have an awesome weekend.
Thank you and you too, Mary! Can’t wait to see what you get into next!
It will be a hard one for me, so I’m a bit unsure whether to tackle or not. Will be deciding soon ~
love seeing them all together, Mary.
Thank you Angie!!

Thanks so much Janet!! Have a lovely weekend ~
Am enjoying a long bank holiday weekend…despite rainy grey weather:)
The process developing is always interesting – and so are the results! Have a great weekend!
Thanks so much Ann-Christine, really appreciate it! Is school back in session yet? Have a great weekend.
Mary, I have decided for a time out at my job. So – I guess I’m feeling like you – free to do what I like! A whole year off…I just had to. My parents are old and things are happening in my family. Some collegues and friends my age have got severe problems with health and some have died. Stress every day, and this Spring term almost had me on my knees.
Sometimes you have to stop and think – is this what I want?
Hugs and wishes for a great weekend.
Your story sounds so familiar Ann-Christine, especially with the parents. Yes – you’ll find the break is the absolute in putting so much into perspective and gaining a hold on your peace of mind. I’m happy for you – have a beautiful break my friend.
thank you, Mary. Feels good with supportive thinking!
sei bravissima ciao
Grazie mille per la tua bella commento.
Thanks so much!
It’s such a good experience to watch these drawings of yours unfold Mary.
Thank you so much Don. The process of drawing is pretty relaxing, I love doing these Thursday drawing projects. Have a great weekend!
Stunning achievement Mary!!! Your patience with the medium is astounding. But it is totally worth it in the end. Thanks for sharing the progressions of each of your wonderful drawings. That’s the post I always look forward to. 😊
Have a lovely weekend!
Thanks so much Rhonda. I’m looking to further refine drawings like this, not quite there – will be a work in progress. Glad you enjoyed the series. Have a great weekend and hope you all have some rain to stamp out the fires.
Love to see the progress! Beautifully developed, remarkable, Mary. 🙂
Thanks Amy for your feedback, really appreciate it. Hope you find some incredible visuals with your lens this weekend.
This is so amazing, Mary. It’s really fascinating to see each stage of your drawing, especially how the wolf evolved. Fabulous artwork! What a great artistic talent you have. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia – glad you enjoyed the series. Still undecided as next week new project, but working towards it – will be new and hope exciting. Really appreciate your support and encouragement. Have a great weekend.
