My first major drawing since arriving in the Tropics is starting to take on a more three-dimensional appearance. There is still a good deal of ‘layering’ to do. The ‘forward’ sections of water and foam need more white, while the ‘recessive’ areas require more French Grey 10%. This will result in greater depth. Strong, single strokes will give movement.
Although I am working with a limited palette because of the subject and the lack of natural light, I am confident that I can do justice to such a powerful subject.
I want to complete this drawing over the next week as I am keen to start another one, this time half the size of my current drawing and featuring some of the rocks and seed pods I’ve collected from near where I live.
Wednesday: Glaskin’s Gallery.
