I did finally manage to get my scanner up and running and my first sketch of Lake Hartwell of 2015!

SC_LakeHartwell_Jan11_2015

Unlike Simcoe, Hartwell is a man made lake and is like a huge spider web with endless coves and nooks, where Simcoe is a big open circle.  The clay subsoil is a bright orange and the water a bright green so it creates some wonderful contrasts.  Kayaking down here is equally interesting as there many quiet spots to reflect and draw.  This was a very quick sketch and I had forgotten my brushes, so I improvised and did finger painting and went home to add addition line detail with a brush.  It’s a very small sketch and the winter down here is rather mild so I will go back and do more studies at this location.
