Discovering Tones

I’ve continued to love these beautiful creatures, and they definitely have challenged me when it comes to drawing. With each drawing I learn something new about these creatures and my own drawing style! Here we have a enormous elephant, in theory. I believe the tones and reveal of the elephant to just one side, make him seem more personable and scaled down. The variation in tones can really make an impact on what’s portrayed in a drawing!

Pencil and Paper

What depth can be created through pencil and paper. As I experiment with mediums, I am loving pencil on watercolor paper because of the texture it allows. I can use the texture to my advantage when I have a subject who’s skin is full of texture!
