Big Cedar Lake II

I wanted to work on another pen and ink drawing so I pulled out this one that I had started a few years ago (see posts on 25 August 2015 and 30 January 2017).

I started by putting in the rocks at the base of the island on the left side of the drawing and gradually added the trees and growies.

Next I indicated the rock bases on the islands and distant shoreline in the background.

Working from the furthest back trees with the least amount of detail, I gradually added more detail as I worked forward.

Lastly, I put in the ripples on the water, lighter in the background and slightly darker in the foreground.

This original 5-1/2" x 9” pen and ink drawing will be available when matted and shrink wrapped for $40.00.
