Forest rocks

Just finished this piece. Took about four evenings when not playing with the dogs or letting them out. I used grey markers for the distant trees and sky. A little bit of Pentel brush pen for the under brush on the right. My wife keeps getting irritated that I get distracted and draw past the perforations. Anyone else do that?

C&C welcome as always.

Re: Forest rocks

I particularly like your use of blank spaces here. Despite the rocks being very detailed and in the foreground my eyes are drawn to the background. The darker portion in the upper right seems to divide the picture into two. It's an interesting effect.

Re: Forest rocks

Nice sense of distance here Clark, both in use of detail and tone ... I like the lovely very dark foliage contrasting against the white behind.

Re: Forest rocks

Top class work Clark, exactly the kind of thing thing that keeps me popping back into W/C to see the latest work .
For me personally I wouldn't have dared add the wash tones along in the same drawing with the proper hard line work ,yet it works just perfectly
, I didn't even realise you'd done that until I turned off my feeling mind & went to analytical mode ! Love it ,
Mike

Re: Forest rocks

Thank you for the kind words everyone. I think I've said it before. I struggle with the spacing and the mid-ground. This time I decided to trust in leaving it light of details.


MMcoston, I fight with the desire to add too much detail and make everything too dark or leave it too sparse (I probably don't post those LOL).

Maureen, I wanted it to be kind of bold and then let the eye settle downwards and be pulled back up like following the path through the forest.

Mike, I know you and I have gone back and forth about the mixing of brush and lines and this piece my focus was to make it work (also I had to use marker because I did it at the dining room table and if I'd spilled Speedball Super Black on my wife's tablecloth there'd be hell to pay LOL. I did start trying to bring washes down to add shadows but they became overwhelming and I decided that sticking with line work as I moved forward was a much better choice.

Re: Forest rocks

Beautiful piece, your lighting is right on.

I draw past the perforations all the time, I can't ink anywhere but my studio, I can get messy!

Re: Forest rocks

Beatifully done piece Clark. There is sense of depth as well as details in this sketch. Personally I would have preferred you to have got even your darkest darks without using a brush pen. I think the result would have been even lovelier.

Re: Forest rocks

Thank you Virginia and Balaji for the kind words.

There is so much ink and paint on the rug in our studio (and several shirts that are now studio shirts). There's a reason that I'm not allowed out of it with ink pots.

Balaji, I watched a video of someone inking a piece. 65 hours of stippling. I think that I don't have the patience necessary. Fifteen hours on this one was enough for me. Maybe someday I will be able to.
