White Picket Fence - A work in Progress

It is a little colder today with the temperature at 18F (-8C) and the wind chill making it feel like 5F (-15C) adding to this is the 2.5" (6cm) of snow that is currently falling.

As I was going through a box of  partially completed drawings and decided on doing a little more work on this one (see posts on 20 December 2016 and 25 May 2017).

Using a pencil I indicated more trees into the background; and then I added more layers of bushes and growies into the foreground before moving on to the large tree's branches and leaves.

Next I started inking in the background trees and added a little more of the fence on the horizon before starting on the bushes in front of the foreground tree.

From there I worked my way up the main trunk of the tree and along the first large branch; before I proceeded to work on some of the leaves in the lower branches.

I will post this drawing at a later date once the tree has been completed.
