Red Tailed Hawk stage 2
Hi everyone! I have started to work on this drawing again, after a really busy summer, doing shows and selling artwork! It's been a pleasure. Now back to what I love, the drawing part!!!
I worked mostly on the very darkest and very lightest areas of his face. I'm liking how reflective his eye looks but it has many more layers to build up as I go. One day I will keep a list of each color I use on one drawing, in order. It would be hard, but I think it could teach me something more about the process that I use, mostly without thinking in advance. I do always start with a light pencil drawing and erase small parts of it as I go and add color to them. Mostly the white areas have no pencil marks because I know they will be white. But drawing on this recycled paper makes the whites pop and they have to be added, not like when I draw on white paper!
Enjoy! I've missed keeping up with everyone and will be checking back in with all my friends on Everyday Matters on a daily basis again!
