Peace and Quiet – graphite drawing

“Walk away from all the turbulence out there and find yourself a moment of peace and quiet enjoying the riches of nature, ” . . . by Mary

Peace and Quiet, a graphite drawing (8×10) was drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper using mostly 2H, HB, B and 2B.  Additional tools used in this piece were a kneaded eraser and a sable brush to produce an overall soft atmosphere.  This scene gave me just what I was looking for – a quiet place to walk into and enjoy the early morning light.

For those that celebrate Easter, I hope you have a meaningful and Happy Easter holiday weekend ~

    There is such a fabulous contrast in this work…love it!

  13. Nature gets around. I garden and find the ‘peace and quiet’ you mention, and you draw and find it. Others enjoy that walk you describe. However, you get your nature fix, it’s a good thing. 🙂
