Clear Lake IV - Sitting Ducks I

I wanted to complete this drawing that I worked on last month (see posts on 09 June 2013 and 05 August 2016).

First I added in the rest of the cattails to the right of the large rock and the more I looked at the drawing the more I felt that something was missing.

Using a pencil, I lightly sketched in a pair of ducks sitting on the large rock near the cattails; it was at this point that I decided to change the name of the drawing to Sitting Ducks.

I carefully inked them in and then added some cast shadow onto the rock and put in some of their reflections into the water.

This original 4-1/2" x 9” pen and ink drawing when matted and shrink wrapped with be available for $40.00.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork.
