Therese's Oven I - A Work in Progress

This morning started off as cold as yesterday's high of 25F (-4C) with the wind chill making it feel like 14F (-10C), but the nice thing is it will warm up to 36F (2C) with a wind chill of only 25F (-4C).

Today I wanted to do a little work on a pen and ink drawing so I pulled out this sketch from a few years ago (see post on 26 August 2013) when painting with the KAGS Outdoor Painters at Therese Harmon's home.

I started on the left side of the drawing and inked in the tree, adding the leaves as I put in the various branches.

I started putting in some of the grasses and growies around the base of the trees and at the bottom of the oven.

Next I put in one of the fence posts a put in some of the grasses on the lawn below the post.

From there I started working on some of the field stones that the oven was made of and added shadows to the rocks.

I will post this drawing at a later time once I have completed the oven.

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