Buildings I

Yes it is snowing! Overnight we received 2" (5.1cm) of heavy packing snow with the temperature in the morning being 30F (-1C) and the wind chill making it feel like 28F (-2C).

For the rest of the day we are going to have mixed precipitation of rain and snow. We will see how much of this white stuff will remain on the ground.

I thought I would work on this drawing today, that I had started a number of years ago (see post on 14 August 2013).

First I worked on the buildings, adding shingles, tiles or metal onto the roofs; as well as a couple of chimneys onto the main building.

Next put on the boards and siding on the various buildings, followed by the windows and doors.

Then it was time to start putting in the background trees and bushes behind the buildings and adding a little smoke coming out from one of the chimneys on the main building.

I put in the horizon line on the lake; and then on the shoreline I added in some grasses and growies on the bank and water ripples below and into the lake.

This original 4-1/4" x 9” pen and ink drawing when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $40.00.
