Hello everyone, I will be using my blog spot to post work in progress images and this is one of them. The "Swaney Road Barn" drawing is completed and the Limited Edition Prints are ready and available for purchase on my website. But I wanted to post the first work in progress (WIP), image from this drawing. The fence post in the drawing is one of two that are in it. The first is closer to the viewer in the scene and therefore large and more detail can be seen. I love doing old wood posts and fences. They have so much character that no two are alike. There are approx. 6 hours of drawing time in the completion of this post. Lots of work yet to do at this point in the drawing. The foreground fence and weeds present many different challenges. As you can see there is also some barbed wire strands that run around and to and from the posts in the scene. This is very challenging in and of it's self. The twists and highlights on each must be done one at a time with careful consideration of the next. If you have any questions regarding this part of the drawing please feel free to ask me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Cheers !
