Coon Lake X and Long Lake VI - Two Works in Progress

Today I wanted to progress a little further on a couple of pen and ink drawings that I started a number of years ago (see posts on 29 July 2014, 20 July 2016, 31 August and 22 October 2017) while canoeing on some of the lakes in the area.

I started by adding more shading on a number of the rocks on the island.

From there I progressed to adding some cast shadows over some of the rocks.

There is still a lot more to do on the rocks and I left working on them to add a few more ripples into the water.

I will post this piece at a later date.

Coon Lake X

I added the distant trees into the far shoreline on another drawing that I had started a while ago (see post on 15 June 2013 and 05 July 2016).

Next I put in one of the larger pine trees on the island.

Long Lake VI

I will post this painting again once I have added more of the trees on the island.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork.
