“Battered by whatever Mother Nature delivers and still standing. Fence posts are a great subject, each with character that tells their own story. ” by Mary
Battered Fence Posts, a drawing (8×10) was drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. In this drawing I wanted the background to stay way back there, so I used charcoal with limited detail and a bit fuzzy – charcoal delivered on this aspect. My main goal with the fence posts was to make them substantial, but distinguishable from the background. Knowing that constant wind can make wood poles somewhat smooth, almost reflective, and give them great character – graphite worked beautifully for these aspects. As for the wire, I wanted the wire to be very dark and standout – carbon was the perfect medium.
Sorry the photograph looks slightly blurry (do to bad lighting and shaky hand) – hopefully you still get a good read on the scene. Thanks for visiting ~ have a wonderful weekend!
