Clear Lake II - A Work in Progress

The swallows have arrived! I saw one pair of barn swallows and two pairs of tree swallows. Hopefully this year they will nest again in the barn and in the surrounding trees.

I decided that I would continue to ink in this drawing (see posts on 09 June 2013, 23 March and 12 October 2016 and 05 March 2017).

First, I lightly put in the distant trees into the background behind the far rocks.

Next I indicated the top of the distant rocks and then the closer rock, at which time I added the small pine tree.

Then I turned my attention to completing the three large trees on the island.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have completed the shadows on the rock.
