Dusty by the river

Dusty by the river

Took the ol' hound dog down to the river behind my house for a walk. This is one of his favorite things in life. This is a quick pencil sketch which I will finish in water color. Here's the problem I running into... If I develop the pencil drawing too much, I leave to many strokes visible after the water color is applied. So, there are palces where you may not see alot of resolution in this drawing but my hopes are color will fill in the gaps and help you see what I saw on our walk. The Spring colors are beautiful. The river water in the foreground will be a challenge.

I'm sure it will be wonderful, I'm looking forward to seeing it finished. :o)

You know you love a challenge, Chuck! Next time, why don't you do a more developed tonal drawing AND a sketchy one like this for painting later? You might get clearer about the values you want in the painted version if you worked them out in pencil first. Just a thought.
PS Thanks so much for your nice comments recently

I don't have time for one sketch! You want me to do two! Just kidding... you're right. As always.
