Cottage Bench Drawing

Today I'd like to share a snapshot of my most recent drawing...

Cottage Bench . charcoal on paper . 8x10 . 2011

It's a smaller version of Cottage Chairs and was commissioned by a lovely couple from the church that I grew up going to.  Their family built the cottage that we rent every summer where these chairs sit overlooking the beach.  Just like the cottage, this unique bench was hand-built.

Drawing at a smaller size was a little bit difficult and at one point I wasn't sure if I could actually do it.  The last thing I wanted was to loose all the details and end up with a smudgy charcoal mess!  But as I kept at it, I really enjoyed the challenge.  I'm even planning on working in this smaller size for my upcoming drawings.  Until next time...

Thanks for dropping by.
