Love it.

There's some mystery here - the boat's reflection shows a sail, but the boat hasn't got one. I don't know if that was deliberate, but | really like the effect. Suggests all sorts of stories/poems, as art should do, of course.

Very intriguing Lake!

Delph, you have a valid point about the shadow. Glad you mentioned stories and poems in this drawing.
Seth, gald you think it is intriguing.

I am still practicing how to use brushstroke and ink to get a desired effect - the five colors of ink!


Thanks you both.

This is fascinating, Lake.
It's like a picture from a half-forgotten dream.
I like it. Veryvery much.
