Westside of Mount Olympus

Westside of Mt Olympus
Charcoal on paper
10″ x 18″

I headed out to draw about 7:30 am and drove around for a little bit until I found this view of Mt Olympus. I liked the pattern across the mountain. You can see that I made several attempts to draw the shape correctly. It took me until noon. I started that early because I thought it would be easier to begin before the light “filled in” the mountain with details. I ran into a snag, a fog came up about 9:00 and I couldn’t see the bottom part of the mountain. I did my best and then drove to another place where I could see where the mountain meets the land and there wasn’t any fog.
