Had a hour or so of daylight after a midtown meeting. Took the opportunity to push the ink wash work a bit forward. I’ve been chatting a bit with Nathan Fowkes who has helped guide me to a better path. I switched over to a thinner paper (stillman&birn alpha sketchbook) in order to try to pick the black off of the solids and create washes with a pen brush. So, a couple of quick studies. First, a different view of the island in the dying light. Second, a view of the stone ledge on the point to the south of the lake… odd and dreamy.
Still wrestling with the dreadful mess of it all.
