Burleigh Inn Pine Tree I - A Work in Progress

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

We have just returned from Algonquin Provincial Park and I thought I would do a little more work on this drawing that I had started last year at my first paint out (see posts on 08 June and 21 October 2017 and 02 August 2018) with the KAGS Outdoor Painters' Group.

I started by finishing the trunk on the big pine tree in the foreground first and then continued by completing the remaining tree limbs and added in all the pine needles.

From there I put in the three maple trees to the left side of the pine starting with the tree trunks first and then added in the tree branches followed by the leaves.

On the rocks in the foreground and background I added some of the small bushes, grasses and growies around the bases of the trees and into some of the cracks and crevices in the rocks.

Before putting this drawing away for the night I added some ripples into the water.

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