NEW CP DRAWING

“Shell Study, Baker’s Beach, Northern Tasmania”,

Prismacolor pencils on Canson pastel board.

This week has resulted in  a new drawing which has reached the ‘blocked-out stage’. I am now ready to add the details of texture, light and shadow to give a more three-dimensional feel to the composition. I am going to put the drawing away for a few days and start another drawing, this one featuring river stones.

It’s good to take a break after a long stint at the same drawing. Giving yourself some time away enables you to look at the work with ‘fresh eyes’. You can get too familiar with the same drawing over an extended time. There is always the temptation to get it over with and move on to something new. No carefully planned artwork deserves to be rushed. The process must be enjoyable and the product is the reward at the end of its creative journey!
