Today’s Thursday’s drawing is a final drawing rather than a project, it was done in two sittings. Looking for a theme of strength I thought what better than a lighthouse that has stood the test of time.
Pemaquid Lighthouse (located in the State of Maine), is a graphite and carbon (7×5) drawing done on a cream-tinted blank notecard. The surface is textured, which added a wonderful element of interest in person, but unfortunately doesn’t photograph too well (sorry about that). The graphite pencils used were: 2H, HB, B, 3B/4B. Carbon (2B) was used for the top of the lighthouse to give it a dark, non-reflective appearance. A kneaded eraser created interesting effects in the sky and water. Also to note that the fence was developed using negative drawing.
