Discovery Pond

Some days, I long for the natural, unkempt landscape, and this was one of those days.  Just being surrounded my nature is restorative.  I remembered this pond from last year, and was already envisioning the painting to come.  Once there, most of the water's surface was covered with tiny green tree debris - there were virtually no reflections!  Not yet dissuaded, I put pen to paper to establish a clear compositional plan.  Well, I decided it would just be too much work to transition into paint!  This is the real benefit of inking first - I just saved myself some time!  Painting number 1957 in 1957 days.
