Old Mill at Lake Olathe

A drawing of the old stone building (mill?) out at Lake Olathe south of Dennis where Cedar Creek flows under the bridge into the lake.  This is to fill an art challenge for the Olathe Visual Artists Association (OVA).

I originally tried to do this as a full-color digital painting, but working on it just felt like pulling teeth.  When I started over and decided to try with thin brown lines instead, something just seemed to click.  I’m not sure if it’s that good, but it satisfied me so much more than a painterly, colored piece would have.
