I'm using another photograph from the Paint My Photo website for this pencil work. It's about A3 size on Bristol board. I once painted a similar scene to this in watercolour with gouache which I remember being instrumental in me developing a method to give the effect of water splash. This time working in pencil, from the start I have no idea how I am going to get the required effect. It will be challenging and time consuming that's for sure. It might all go horribly wrong, we shall see.
This area is far from completed. It doesn't look like I have achieved much at all but I've been working slowly and learning as I go. That's part of the beauty of working in pencil. As I'm quite busy at the moment with other stuff I can pick up or leave this as time allows. I estimate that this is going to take many days to complete, in particular the lower part of the water with it's waves and reflections.
I'll update the blog once I have more progress to show.
