Done as part of a practice session with poses of 10 minutes in length.

I am still getting the hang of scenes and landscape. This is an underground cave with extremely clear and blue water.

I am finding this an interesting challenge because I can draw people so well. And it's easy to become a lazy artist because you develop short hand movements for body parts. And doing something like htis really makes you stretch your skills.

There is no fast shorthand movement for a cave wall for me. So I have to really think about everything that I do.

Very interesting write up, sihifting gears to landscape is tricky! And with just two pens. but on the plus side, our eyes can't pick out errors in proportions as easily as when looking at a human figure drawing.

I don't think I would have been able to see the cave and puddle without your help. Maybe some individual rocks or little pebbles, and maybe a stalagtite or stalagmite, even if it's not in the photo, I'd instantly know I was looking in a cave. Hope this is helpful.
