I have decided to start another drawing, the third in a series of shells. Planning any artwork involves time and research. I had already been away and taken about 60 photos at Baker’s Beach, on the north coast of Tasmania. From these I have selected two images that have been cropped from their original state and are now completed colour pencil drawings. For my third I chose 5 ‘possible’ scenes and have decided on one in particular.
Today I want you to see the basic outline of the composition but to understand why I chose this particular composition.
The drawing is 80 x 34 cm, a ‘panorama’ view as I like to call it. The composition is divided into 4 parts: Parts 1 & 4 are large rocks that act as ‘buttresses’ to the subject, shells, which will be located in parts 2 & 3. One particular shell is the focal point and will be located close to the centre-right.
Next week I will start to add colour and detail. I will post updates later in the week of the drawing’s development.
