A pair of rocks

Just some rocks. Drawn on location with ink wash and a pair of Microns, about 5x6".

Re: A pair of rocks

Nice shading ..it just needs a little rabbit peeking out behind the foremost rock. But that's just me, the animal lover.

Re: A pair of rocks

And why not !
& why ? - because such apparently simple still life studies done from life enhance our art immeasurably.
Way to go VA.

Re: A pair of rocks

Thanks all. Like the builders of Stonehenge I struggle with rocks, but maybe it'll be worth it in the end.

Re: A pair of rocks

Leaves is my worst nightmare. I don't know why it is, but for some reason my leaves always look fake and contrived no matter what I do.

Re: A pair of rocks

This is a lovely little study. Really like the shading and textures.

Re: A pair of rocks

When are two rocks more than "just two rocks"? Right here! Very enjoyable to look at!

Re: A pair of rocks

Don't know how I missed this first time round - sorry VA ...... definitely worth seeing - really good work on both texture and tone ....... rocks are difficult for me too, so I probably should follow your example!

VanAndrew - your rocks rock! (Sorry, once an engineer, always...). I too struggle to draw realistic rocks and yours serve as a good example to emulate.

Excellent, VA! Struck me as Eastern at first glance on a small phone screen, but I zoomed in to see the nice line/hatch work. Very effective use of line and wash.

Re: A pair of rocks

That front rock looks like a very comfortable seat when tired on a long walk. Just enough details on the front rock and the right amount of lack of details on the back one. well done.
