Afternoon Break: Finished – Pencil Drawing

Friday, April 18th, 2008

Afternoon Break Finished - Pencil Drawing
Title: Afternoon Break
Medium: Graphite Pencil
Paper: Canson Grain
Size: 25 × 20 cm (10″ × 8″)

We finally had a chance to update the blog so here’s the finished drawing.

The wall was mostly done using a paint brush dipped in graphite powder and a shop towel. The darkest parts were rendered with an 8B wooden pencil. I also used the same brush on the frames and jamb of the French door and the underpainting of the bushes. To create the leaves of the bushes, I used the 8B pencil. I hope you like it. Please let me know what you think by leaving a comment.

This is number two in the series of five drawings entitled “Coffee”. The first one is on our website and it is called “Coffee, Anyone?

Friday, March 7th, 2008

It has been a long time since I last updated “Afternoon Break”. So to make up for lost time, here are two stages of the drawing:

Afternoon Break Stage 8 - Pencil DrawingAfternoon Break Stage 9 - Pencil Drawing

I continued working on the folds of the tablecloth. In the latter stage, one leg of the table is finished.

I am almost done with Afternoon Break, so these will be the final scans before I post the completed drawing.

Monday, February 11th, 2008

I haven’t been able to concentrate on this lately, so just a little update today. Rendered the handles of the cap and pot. Also, I finished the tablecloth and started the folds. Here’s a correction on my previous post — the pot was mostly done using a brush with graphite powder.

Afternoon Break: Stage 5 – Pencil Drawing

Friday, January 25th, 2008

I did the steel coffee pot using a brush dipped in graphite pencil powder and a 0.5 mm 2B mechanical pencil. I originally intended to do a glass coffee pot but I was not able to think of a suitable design for the cap, so I just turned it into a steel one.
