Jug at the Window, graphite drawing


This was a fun still life, a basic scene that offered a few challenges to keep me interested from a stone shelf, brick wall, a sturdy/thick jug, to a covered window – everything I could have wanted for a drawing ~

Jug at the Window, a graphite drawing (12×9) was done on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper using pretty much every value range in my General’s supply of graphite pencils.  Many layers were put down, blended and layered again until the subjects were covered adequately in the correct tones.  A variety of erasers were used depending on what I was removing and the effect I was looking for:  kneaded, Tombow, or a Staedtler Mars plastic eraser.  Each had a special purpose in removing the graphite from highlights, to the suns rays, etc.  I even used Frisket on certain aspects of the curtains – the results exactly what I had hoped for.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend ~ click onto the image for a larger view.
