Farm by the River I - A Work in Progress

It is a little warmer today with the temperature at 12F (-11C), with the wind chill making it feel like 0F (-18C) as I went down to the barn to do the morning chores. I get to look forward to snow flurries this afternoon and for it to warm up to 25F (-4C) and a wind chill of 16F (-9C).

While I warmed up with a cup of tea I looked through a number of drawings that  I had started a number of years ago and decided that I would work on this one I did on location on River Road, in Lakefield, Ontario (see post on 11 November 2015).

I started with the dead tree trunk in the foreground on the left side of the drawing.

Once the tree was finished, I put in the farm in the background on the other side of the river, including the fences and trees at the edges of the fields.

Next I came back to the foreground and put in the grasses and growies at the base of the dead tree on the left side of the drawing.

I will post this again at a later time once I have put in on the right side of the drawing.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.
