Drawings: The rain clouds

 

I have been drawing again today as it was such dramatic weather. The steely grey rain clouds drifting across the south bank of the Humber while the sun was beaming down and huge white towering clouds billowed on the north bank. This resulted in spectacular effects of light and tone over the vast expanse of space.

Pastel: Rain

The chimneys of the industrial sites across the water were engulfed in the rain clouds but still visible as shadowy blocks. I was overawed by this spectical but didn’t get anywhere near capturing it in the drawings but the vision is still clear in my mind to work on in the future.

Pencil crayon: Rain cloud

I like the contrast of styles in these two drawings. The pastel being lose and expressive, drawn with speed on location and the pencil crayon more contained and geometric, drawn later in the studio.
