“I step onto the path and as my feet sink into the first grains of sand I can feel the salty sea breeze hit my face, the smell of the sea water and screeching call of the gulls – it’s at that moment a sense of quiet solitude comes over me like a soft warm wrap.” by Mary
Seeking Solitude, a graphite drawing (10×8) was done on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper using loose graphite powder and graphite pencils (2H, HB, B, 4B and 6B) as the medium, and tortilium, Mono Zero Tombow’s and kneaded erasers to bring magic to the scene. This was one of those ocean scenes that I could feel before I even began drawing it ~ a sense of peace fills the air.
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, perhaps I can finally catch up with everyone’s blog posts. Thank you for visiting ~ click onto the image for a larger view.
Inspiration for this drawing came from a wonderful artist and photographer on pmp, Rose Herczeg.
