Step 1 I draw in the shapes and block in some of the darks with the pastel pencil. Notice the light lines dividing the paper into 1/3s. This approach is an aid in drawing and composition.
|Step 1- Draw in basic shapes. A good time for drawing corrections if needed|
|Step 2-Start blocking in darks and lights|
|Step 3 - Continue blocking in shapes but because this water is moving I am adding more horizontal strokes earlier in the drawing process|
|Step 4 - Push the color to get some expression of the scene and not just copy nature|
|Step 5 - Add the final light areas of moving water using expressive strokes of color|
