Potash Mountain finis

I did this for the new CD, to demonstrate a very simple approach--but I like it well enough I think I'll use it in the new North Light book I'm working on! It demonstrates ink and wash, underpainting, judicious blotting, and introducing clear water into a damp wash...and it was fun.

 

You can see I strengthened the darks a bit, in this final step.

 

Thinking of Sarah when I did it...she was there with us at New York's Potash Mountain, at Fourth Lake, being adorable as always.
