“Family Jumping Off Dock” Graphite Pencil on Paper, 8″x10″, SOLD
Not every portrait requires a face. Sometimes a gesture can express far more.
The dynamic movement of their legs and the beautiful cast shadows add a great sense of movement to make the composition visually captivating. To make the water appear glossy, I gently added a layer of white ink over the water’s surface. The rest of the drawing (the people, the dock and the landscape in the background) stayed a little more grainy – giving this family portrait a very vintage feel. This was a very unique pencil drawing to create and such a fun experience!
