Dark Water I

Today I wanted to finish this drawing that I had started last year (see posts on 02 July, 20 August and 31 October 2016).

I started by putting in the rest of the trees on the distant shoreline, indicated a few rocks at the waterline and added in a few ripples into the water below the rocks.

From there I started working on putting in the shadows on the large rocks behind the pine trees and the large dead cedar tree.

I added in the growies and small bushes along the edge of the water and at the base of some of the trees.

This was followed by adding definition and shadows onto the small rocks on the shoreline.

Next I put in the two dead cedar tree trunks on the left side of the drawing.

Lastly, I added more ripples into the water in the foreground below the rocks and the shoreline.

This original 6" x 9" pen and ink drawing when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $40.00.
