Clear Lake II - A Work in Progress

I wanted to do a little more work on this drawing that I have been working on for a while (see posts on 09 June 2013, 23 March and 12 October 2016).

The drawing seemed to lack definition, so I went in with a pencil and added more details to the large foreground trees, indicated a large rock on the right side and added a pine tree.

With the fine liner I put more cattails in front of the island and also a few more of the water ripples.

Next I added some of the branches and needles onto the foreground pine trees.

I kind of like the way it looks, having a mix of the pen and ink and graphite pencil.

I will post this drawing again once I decide if I am going to leave the drawing as it is, or when I have completed the trees on the island.
