Tonal Landscape Study – Muhunoa NZ

It was a little grey and overcast this particular day as we ventured out on our bicycles for breakfast and coffee. Unfortunately the heavens opened and down came the rain so only time to capture the scene taken on the Muhunoa East Road by camera and later working a few sketches from this in the studio.

Starting from an abstracted horizontal study I rendered this back to the original sketch. Media used included; water soluble pencil and carandache crayon, gesso, ink – both permanent and water based and soft pastels.

Work is approximately 14″ x 7″ on Fabriano Artistico 300 gsm HP paper.
