Big Cedar Lake VI

I just returned from physiotherapy and have gotten a few more exercises to do in order to get full range back in my knee, now that the hinge has been completely opened.

I thought I would complete this drawing that I had been working on last month (see posts on 23 August 2016 and 03 January 2017).

Starting with the second half of the background and using vertical strokes I continued with the distant trees, putting in an occasional pine with a little definition.

Next I put the rocks along the shoreline and a couple into the water and added the shading.

I put in the largest pine trees behind the rocks and then added growies and small bushes between the rocks and the base of the pines.

Lastly, I added the waterline and water ripples at the base of the rocks and against the shoreline

This original 5-1/2" x 9” pen and ink drawing when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $40.00.
