Drawing of the Month - November 2018 - "Ullswater in Winter"

One of my favourite parts of the English Lake District is Ullswater.  With three separate stretches to the lake and surrounded by breathtaking fells it is a dream subject for any artist! This particular drawing is of one of the many boathouses situated along the lake shore with this being the Duke of Portland Boathouse at the northern end of the lake. This view of the boathouse is looking north towards the Pooley Bridge end of Ullswater.  I wanted to convey an atmospheric, wintery feel to my drawing so used a very limited range of colour to add to the darker tones of the trees that I did using a 4B graphite pencil.  To create a misty effect in the background to the right I did some light shading with a harder graphite pencil and then blended in the shades to give the effect of the trees fading into the distance
