Abstract mountain shapes 

  I was sitting on my deck waiting for a storm when I noticed the waning light producing these wonderful abstract shapes on the cliffs to the north. I had to draw these and capture the definition of rock as described by the evergreens and shifting shadows. By the time the storm blocked out the light, I had a fairly good idea of what was happening, but had made the mistake of putting down my first pencil and picked up a harder one making some strokes lighter than I wanted. 

I learn how to make abstract shapes best through observing nature.
