Harper's Ferry, WV Revisited In My Studio by Larry Lerew

Harper's Ferry Crossing" by Larry Lerew
Acrylic & Ink on 10.5 x 13.5" Watercolor Paper

This painting was started August 2011 from a plein air pencil sketch I made the year before and I just figured out how to bring it to completion by adding loose black ink calligraphy. Notice the distant mountains were left untouched to help them sit back in the painting while the foreground and middle ground are enhanced by the line work. Progressing as an artist gives me a chance to see things all new again.

The INK really defines this!
