Continuing to challenge myself with still life drawings using graphite and charcoal ~ in this piece it was all about the double tablecloths, in particular the white one.
Resting Comfortably, a graphite and charcoal drawing (9×12) was done on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. Lots of challenges – the biggest I had to tackle was the stark white tablecloth from its design to the way it was laying on top of another tablecloth, working the light and shadow values right was the key here. I’m not convinced that the cloth reflects my best work, it was tough draw. The fruit worked out okay, but my favorite part of the drawing were the leaves and their edges – it was my drawing relief within the piece and I loved working the hard/soft edging against the charcoal background.
Staying true to my growth as an artist – thanks for checking in.
