Lake Reflections I

Today I pulled out this sketch that I did earlier this year (see post on 12 June 2014) and decided it needed some work.

I started with the two large trees in the foreground, which seems to frame the maple tree across the inlet.

Next I put in the distant trees, the maples and the rocks on the far shoreline and the ones in the water.

I put in the foreground shoreline and added some grasses and growies at the base of the trees and at the edge of the lake.

Lastly I added some cattails and bull rushes against the edge of the shoreline.

This original 7" x 9-1/2” pen and ink drawing when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $50.00.
