Waterfall Inked

ink on paper, 6x4
The Nature Sanctuary in Parkville is one of my favorite places to paint!  This is the lower fall leading to a winding creek that trails through the park.  Heavily wooded, it is a bit of a hike in here - but SO worth it!  This sketch is my study for the painting to come.  Rather complicated with the trees, roots, fallen sticks and leaves, I try to simplify to get the values and a sense of where I want the painting to go.  There is nothing like inking to the sound of babbling water....I could do this all day, and probably will!  Painting number 1766 in 1766 days.
