Tellico River View - step by step

First, I found this sketch that I had forgotten about. I drew it while sitting on a boulder in the Tellico River in east Tennessee.

So then I prepared a piece of watercolor paper and sketched my design out in pencil.

I also found some photos from the same trip and printed one out so I could look at the colors and rock shapes etc...

Then, referring to the drawing and the photo, I began to add color in sections.

On this last step, I decided to add definition to everything by using my Ahab fountain pen filled with Noodler's waterproof ink.

And…here is the final painting.
