Fading Light

Fading Light

This is an attempt at creating a "moody landscape", working with light and dark composition to create a mood. The viewer is slowly led into the dark veil of the woods with just hints of the trees deep in the shadows.

Here is a detail of the water. There is a tendency to leave the water in light values. But to create both transparency and depth, the water streaming over the rocks must be darkened. I used 2H and H chisel point leads to create the smooth flowing water. The turbulence and splashes use negative drawing...working in the shadows and base of the waves.
