Pile of Rope


The above sketch was drawn in the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic during class a few weeks ago.  Since then, I have been working from it in a variety of ways, trying to develop more interesting and expressive ways of describing it. The below drawings were done from right to left with ink wash and pencil, watercolour and pencil, and pencil crayons.

            After these studies I introduced charcoal and white acrylic paint and began to work at a larger scale. I think the one on the bottom left is the most interesting because it simplifies the form and brings in a element of mystery.
