Working on the fairy still life again today, I’m very close to finishing it.
Most of the work today was on the lower half. I’m still working in a very simplified manner, unfortunately I’m not sure why I’m working this way. I’m intrigued how so less detail can describe more than is necessary in a subject, but at the same time it is noticeable if the accuracy in the drawing is done well and true to the subject. Its very similar to a blurry photograph, or looking at a figure far off in the distance, even though the exact features are obscured you can still tell if the figure is well formed.
Here is a detail of the lower half. I’m not liking the foot that is in shadow I will have to push that back some more and edit the drawing a bit. I’m very happy with how I described the knee of the back leg though.
