One more

by on Apr.22, 2012, under Sketches, Studio Stuff

One more experimental drawing before moving into a series of works dealing with a musical (sounds) theme. This graphite drawing was intended to be abstract but, somehow, nature crept its way into the forefront and took over as river (moving & resting), vegetation, and trees. The moving river is horizontal and the resting waters are the vertical, soft portion.

Some Graphite Drawing before Projects

by on Apr.17, 2012, under Sketches

Thought I’d work with some graphite and deal with Values (shading) and other art element basics to keep a grasp on visual experimenting. Afterwards, I hope to feel more comfortable with paints and printmaking. For a still life I snapped off a portion of a Laurel branch that was flowering for the Spring. The drawing eventually took on the character of a landscape with experimenting by moving powdered graphite and erasing with a Kneaded erasure. Everything evolved – especially, the ‘landscape.’
