Coffee and Table Napkin: Stage 1 – Pencil Drawing

Coffee and Table Napkin - 1 - Pencil Drawing

Coffee and Table Napkin – Stage 1
Medium: Graphite Pencil
Paper: Canson Grain
Size: 25 × 20 cm (10″ × 8″)

I hope you don’t mind the slow pace with which I update the blog. I have been finishing the Portrait of Ankong these past few weeks. I’ll post it here soon.

The steel coffee pot in “Afternoon Break” gave me an idea for the next work called “Coffee and Table Napkin”. I like the effect of the steel attained on the pot. The dark tones looked kind of metallic.

This is the third and last work that I will be doing for the 5-piece “Coffee” still life drawing series. Faith will be the doing the remaining two.

“Coffee and Table Napkin” has as its subjects, a steel cup with black coffee and a table napkin laid across at its base. I plan to leave most of the background and foreground white so as to make the subjects appear to be popping out of the paper.

I will be using mostly brushes and for hard to reach areas and details, graphite pencils.

Afternoon Break: Finished – Pencil Drawing

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?

Afternoon Break: Stages 8 and 9 – Pencil Drawing

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.

Afternoon Break: Stage 7 – Pencil 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.

Now I established the shadows here using 0.5 mm 2B mechanical pencil. I finished the last cookie and drew the “coffee” in the second cup.
