Loon Call Lake VIII

While today brings us a mix of sun and cloud the temperature reached 74F (23.3C) and the humidity made it feel like 77F (25C). It is the fourth day of unexpectedly warm weather which seems to increase by two degrees each day where in other years we have had snow already on the ground.

I started thinking of a warmer days and being out in the canoe on one of the lakes in the area.

I pulled out the sketches I did from earlier this year when we were on Loon Call Lake (see post on 26 September 2015).

Then I put in the outline of the top of the rocks to give a ground for the tree and growies.

Next I put in the tree, which had a split trunk near to the top showing that it suffered some form of trauma in the past from the elements.

The growies and small bushes were added to the base of the tree.

I put in the dark water line at the bottom of the rocks and added some shadows onto the rocks.

Lastly I put the reflection of the tree into the water.

This original 6" x 11” pen and ink drawing when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $50.00.
