Furthering the Drops...

At the moment, there is nothing to show, as the pencil sketches are too light on the newsprint...  but, none the less, there is in progress another 'landscape in water drop' rendering - this time, as indicated elsewhere, a series of drops showing a progression from desert to full bloom and development...  there are many ways of doing this, but I thought having a sluice ending to the pump would do well, and angle it slightly for more a 3-D effect, with the wind blowing into the pump, and thus having the drops in a series going to the rear of the pump as seen - but with the progression being from the furthest drop to the one just about to leave the sluice [and yes, this would mean the viewing would be reversed, the pump seen facing the other direction]...   am also considering making it more a full landscape one, meaning that there would be something of a background, mounded rock slabs, light in tone, against which the drops show their reflection of the landscape as a panoramic presentation of the scene as it develops...   if this comes out  as mentally 'see', then there will be a revision of "Clear In The Air" in that a like kind of rock background would be added, removing the starkness as it presently is... 


At least that is the idea in mind.........
