Beautiful Strata

This morning I was trying out my "Inktense Watercolor Pencils" and I ended up with a sketch I titled "Beautiful Strata". They are fun to work with and as the name implies, they are "intense". This picture was drawn using every color pencil in the box along with ink.

Gondola Falls

In this sketch, I used Noodler's Golden Brown water-soluble ink and watercolors. I was experimenting with the ink because it is very close to the color of the granite outcrops in the area. The lake just above the falls is named Gondola Lake and Mt Scott can be seen in the background. The scene is as depicted across Medicine Creek from the creek walk.

The ink was applied using a bamboo stick.
