I skipped to the finish here, leaving out any more steps in the process. Sorry. Sometimes when you get into a piece its a drag to keep interrupting yourself to stop and scan. Like with this one. I just wanted to get it done.
I just kept going with more and more and more layers of greys, mostly, building up the colors and values until it was 'there'.
And because its in Ireland, it needed a nice bit of green grass to sit on.
I kept the pencils slightly dull, and let the grain of the paper work for me in making the stone texture.
This was done with Prismacolors exclusively.
I used just about all the French Greys, Warm Greys and Cool Greys, as well as Putty Beige, Slate Grey, and Ginger Root.
The grass was done with Limepeel, Apple Green and Grass Green.
This piece was a fun challenge, since I usually do newer buildings.
(The two previous posts, here and here, document my process with this piece, in case you missed them.)
Next up is something with food.
