Lake Lahontan Saturday Sketching


Nice quiet day of sketching at Lake Lahontan Saturday.   


I'm taking a Great Courses Drawing Class and we're studying composition.  Deciding where the horizon line should be and where most of the activity in the drawing will be.  I chose the foreground and the right side for this drawing.  


Then just a sparse foreground in this one and activity to the left.  I liked doing this one, because I usually put everything in the foreground by habit.  


I really like the trees at Lake Lahontan.  They've got interesting shapes with limbs and branches that have broken off, but the tree still happily grows in whatever direction it wants to.     


And new little trees planting roots all over.  Tiny, but standing tall.
