I started keeping track of my Hours during this drawing. it went past 6hours. I’m thinking “good” might be close to doubledigit hours (~10) for a drawing of this size and complexity.
my wife rightly pointed out that some darkening in the glass background would be closer to the reference image. While I agree;
i think I botched the foreground water enough that further detail in the back might flatten the image and I don’t want to do that.
besides; the image is good ish enough to stand with my other drawings and there are other interesting ideas/images I wish to explore.
but hopefully; I’ll incrementally find myself spending more time on each drawing.
PS. the background is full of lettering; much of it in an alphabet I’m not familiar with. Hindu, maybe? anyways, a fun thing getting a tiny bit of calligraphy in my art. also true is that this was the fun time I’ve ever attempted a motorbike.
very challenging! and rather fun… I enjoyed it. more “message” art.
