This is the ‘fun’ part of the drawing. The hard work of getting the composition into proportion has been done. The base colours are down and a lot of the shadows have appeared.
There is still more to do and when I post an image of the completed drawing, I shall include a pictorial summary of its development.
The reasons that I have not tackled this drawing for a while is due to the fact that I wanted to start a much larger work that is destined for an exhibition in Hobart, in January. And as well, something was ‘bugging’ me about my latest drawing Silent Light. In the end I have added a more dramatic tone to give the white light, the central part of the drawing, more definition. I shall post a photo of the drawing in question, later in the week.
