TROPICAL ROCK


No, this post is not about a new dance craze in Far North Queensland!

I now have 3 drawings ‘on the go’, as I often had when back home in my studio. I shall give updates about drawings 1 and 3 over the next few weeks.

Today I’m featuring the ‘block-out’ stage of drawing 2, a single rock, only centimetres across in size. It’s small and quite insignificant as a landscape object.

Take the time to look at such small objects and you’ll be fascinated  at what you will see. This particular rock contains a superb abstract pattern that I just had to draw. The ‘face’ of this rock would look magnificent if enlarged onto a huge canvas.

A lot of my rock drawings are highly detailed.

It’s nice to look at a single object for a change. Funny, the more I look, the more detail I see!

    I think the more you look at anything, the more you see 🙂
    Lovely detail, and having done so much tin foil I can really appreciate how much small work you have given your attention to in this lovely wip.

      Thanks, April. You’re right on what we can see if we look hard enough. I suppose the problem that artists have is knowing how much detail is required in their work. There are times when we can show too much or too little.
