Inking the stone grist mill

Stone Mill

A little bit easier to see this time, isn’t it.  I’m not quite done with the inking, but you can get the gist of where it is going now.  It has taken me a while to figure out what I want to do in the lower left landscaping but it is slowly woking itself out.

As you can see, I have started the stone on the mill and should finish it soon.  The lower blank areas will be grassy perhaps with some foliage outcroppings to add depth.  I haven’t decided what to do in terms of the water outflow yet.

    A departure from the houses you usually do, Ruth – I like it! I remember seeing some old mills back when I lived in New England; they were always intriguing, and I definitely see the appeal of them as painting subjects.

    This is an historic mill in a local state park. I took the pictures when I attended a school field trip there with my son’s class. We won’t say how long ago though.
