Big Cedar Lake I and II - Two Works in Progress

The temperature has once again dropped down to 9F (-13C) with the wind chill making it feel like -2F (-19C) as I went out to do the barn chores. The nice thing is that by the afternoon the temperature is to go up to 19F (-7C) with the wind chill making it feel like 9F (-13C) and the sun will be shining.

After warming up with a cup of tea I pulled out these two drawings that I started a couple of years ago while canoeing on Big Cedar Lake (see posts on 23 August 2015 and 09 October 2016).

Big Cedar Lake I

I started near the left side of the paper and put in the large  pine tree on the shore first and continued to work my way across the to the left side of the paper adding in the trees close to the shore.

It was time to take a break and after taking the dog out for a walk and having lunch I started to do some work on the other drawing on the same piece of paper.

Big Cedar Lake II

Starting on the left side I put in a couple of the closer pine trees.

Next I decided that I needed a change and instead of continuing with the trees I put the motor boat on the lake.

I will post each of these drawings at a later date as more work on them had been completed.
