Another one of my favorites from my Jesus drawings series is featured this week!
Medium: Graphite on paper
Size: 18″ x 24″
When: Winter 2012
Time to complete: About 10 hours over a week
Thought process: This one was fairly easy to design. I knew I wanted Jesus breaking the bread and a glass of wine as the main composition. The balance was a little off, so I ended up adding the bowl of bread to help get the composition right.
Problems I encountered: Oh man, I remember how hard it was to get the shadows just right. They either looked like they were black construction paper on the table or the perspective was off. I still don’t think they’re quite right, but they’re so much better than they had been!
Favorite part: I love the folds on Jesus’ tunic sleeves. I love doing folds in fabric anyway, but I think they’re pretty awesome.
Oh, and the fact that the hands turned out as well as they did was no small miracle. Hands are hard!!!
Least favorite part: I’m not sure. The shadows still bug me, but overall I think this one turned out well and I’m happy with it 🙂
This is one of the most popular drawings in the series!
It is one of the six drawings from the series on permanent display in church.
Product availability: Unavailable at this time, but will probably be included in the note card set!
