This little sketchbook drawing was a fun experiment in how to draw water. I am no pro when it comes to such things. But because this is just my sketchbook, and there’s no pressure, I just decided to have a little fun with it.
The original scene of inspiration is from across the road and is actually rhododendron blooming over the river, with rocks and a shore close at hand. That was more complex than I wanted to commit to, so I made the body of water a lake with a distant shore. Ah, the creative freedoms of the sketchbook!
