Drawing Study: Rocky outcropping

As I'm still studying water, today's drawing is based on a bay that friends and I kayaked into (San Juan Islands) for lunch. The place was gorgeous.

On the left, we see a large outcropping of water as it descends into the bay. Behind it, we see the trees. Since we are near the shoreline, we see more of the reflection of the rock into the water. Most notably, though, is that the shadow is more prevalent than the actual rock features. This was due to the fact that the water was not perfectly still.

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this drawing. The rocks definitely have that "jagged" look and the water seems to do a good job mirroring the rock above it.
