Sketchbook: Things To Come I
Todays drawing is a graphite study for a future painting. I was inspired by one of my previous sketches and went back and did a photo composition combining elements of two different photographs. I then had an 8x10 printed and took with my sketchbook to Borders where I started workI started with a soft contour of the roan foal and then worked on the shading. After getting the drawing of the foal established I came back to draw the cutter and cow. I had a little trouble in the sketchbook due to format so had to reduce the size. This is the part I will work on a little more before moving to the painting. After I finished the cutter and cow I took a rest and read a drawing magazine, and then came back in about 1/2 hour to do more modeling work on the foal.
