First Pencil strokes into the water

Had a wonderful BC Long Weekend and even got out for an evening kayak with my wife around the waters where we live. Such a beautiful spot with lots of artistic inspiration. 
Speaking of time on the water, I would like share a small section of the beginning stage of my latest piece. It's a subject totally new for me but I'm always up for the challenge...water is one of the most difficult elements so follow along as we learn this one together. Enjoy
