This work was prepared after I drew this piece including the sea and the setting sun in my local pastel class.
I thought I wanted to retry this work, but I did not think that redoing the whole things at the same time would be a good approach. I wanted to make sure that I could:
a) draw the setting sun as I want
b) draw the seashore as I want
So, there were two things I wanted to master completely. Therefore I decided to try a) first, hence the work “goin’ home”, which is much simpler design including only the white silhouette of a bird and the setting sun.
I also wrote a short article covering the making of “goin’ home- bird” in my Japanese version of blog post. The post is written in Japanese, but you can see how this work has been drawn by looking at the photos of my drawing process.
