Drawing the Winter Landscape

Hey ya! I am currently in Nathrop, CO taking a class called "Drawing the Winter Landscape." This is my first drawing in progress with a picture of the actual scene below. I will be here with 12 other students and our professor for another 4 days. The class is short, just 10 days total, but I am learning a lot!

This drawing is a combination of both ink and brush as well as reed pen. A reed pen is a thin twig of bamboo that I carve the tip of to make it work like an old fashioned quill pen that you dip in ink. The textures you can make with it are fabulous! I used it most in the foreground (the bottom of the paper). A lot of the lighter areas are done using a brush and diluted ink.
