I don't often do landscape sketches, because for me, they are so dang hard! I like to challenge myself, however, and get out of my comfort-zone. If you don't take a few risks, you are forever stuck in a rut, stagnating and boring yourself as well as those around you. This sketch is from a photo that I took many years ago. I liked the bare rock in front of the lake, and the busy-ness of the pines before the peak. I want to stay comfortable with sketching landscapes, so that I can do several on location when I travel. I hope to travel a bit more than I do right now, when the price of gas goes down, or we get an electric vehicle!
