Lake Tulloch Studies

We went to the lake! It was hot! Visual art makes me not think of words! I took some pretty photos (lakes are photogenic) and so did mom, and then I worked on these studies. Only the tree one is from life, the rest are composites from photos.

This is my favorite. I made it from a picture of Dad and the tent, a picture of Nick and mom and the tent, and a picture of the tent. It required a thumbnail sketch to work out the positioning.
This is better as a photo (it is on my facebook).

This will look a bit nicer when the ink dries.
Extreme foreshortening is a challenge for me, I have a pencil sketch of this but do not feel confident to ink it.

The lovely, lovely view from the tent.
