Coon Lake IV

Earlier this month (see post on 14 April 2018) I completed a drawing of Coon Lake that I started a number of years ago on the same canoe trip that I did this drawing (see posts on 29 July 2014 and 30 March 2016).

I continued to work my way down the trunk and the main pine tree adding branches and needles until I reached the earth.

Next I worked on the two smaller pines on the right side of the main pine tree and on the tree stump.

I put in the horizon line behind the trees and added the small islands in the distance.

From there I returned to the foreground and put in the small bushes to the left side of the main tree and the fallen tree trunk.

Next I added in the rocks at the base of the main tree and at the edge of the lake, followed by adding in the grasses and a few bull rushes into the water.

To complete the drawing I added in the water ripples below the rock as well as a few more ripples at the base of the closer islands on the horizon line.

This original 9" x 12" pen and ink drawing when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $95.00.
