Pen and Ink Drawing

Another piece from the Winter Landscape drawing class I took in January. The second picture is a photo of the area but not from the same spot where I sat to draw the scene. I am pretty sure that is Mt. Antero drawn in the background since it is the one just south of Mt. Princeton.

Anyway, this was a nice setting to draw in since it was exposed to the sun all day and I could sit comfortably in the snow...better than rocks or a wet log, ya know.

The tree was the most fun. I drew (well it felt more like painting) with diluted india ink and a brush. At the end I touched it up with a reed pen to give it some sharper lines.

The drawing is 15"x11" on paper.
