This week I had a go at a wildlife sketch. The smaller elephant was done with a pencil. The larger and more free sketch was drawn with a bamboo cane with a piece of charcoal taped to the end. The drawing was then completed with the paper taped to the floor and done stood up using the cane. Very enjoyable way of drawing and I like the result more than the carefully sketched elephant. It goes a long way to me trying to develop a freer way of producing artwork.
This painting was done from a photograph taken in the local park during the winter. This was done in watercolour with the foreground trees done in acrylics. This stopped me having to use masking fluid which I don’t like.
Thanks for looking….
