Lily Lake, Beaver Lodge

Here's my beaver lodge illustration for my Lily Lake series. Yes, if you look very closely, you can spy the lodge in the large picture near the middle, toward the top. ( closer view in the lower right panel)

PIP- Picture in Progress - Beaver Lodge at Lily Lake

This is what I'm working on now.

Lily LakeSeries, Drawing 2, Tween Lakes Picnic Pavilion

Lately, I've been walking around one of my finest sources of scenic inspiration, Lily Lake, at Chenango Valley State Park. The lake is one of two kettle lakes formed when a glacier melted eons ago. I'm taking bazillions of reference photos,(thank God for digital cameras) hoping to collect enough reference photos to use as I design and draw a dozen new drawings for my 2013 Calendar- A Walk around Lily Lake. Here's my drawing of the Tween Lakes picnic pavilion that overlooks Lily Lake. It has electrical outlets if you ever decide on a whim to have a pancake breakfast picnic- just BYOB- bring your own batter, as well as an electric fry pan.
