Almost missed my deadline for posting my progress on Feeding for Thursday’s Drawing ~
Feeding, (12×9) a graphite drawing is being done on Bristol Vellum paper, the smooth side. Today’s work was concentrated on one of the Tern’s using graphite pencils 2H, HB, B, 4B and 6B – a tortilium for blending and a kneaded eraser. About another hour of work is needed to finish up working the feathers and patterns on this Tern and then I’ll turn my attention to the foreground bird. The darkest values have now been established in this Tern (I believe is the male), that will allow me to work on the lighter valued female Tern. Once both birds are completed the final steps will be to develop the foreground reflections in the sand and finish the background water.
Have a wonderful weekend ~ click onto the image for a larger view of the details.
