Ink Drawing; Truck near Strelna, Alaska

Pencil sketch and beginning ink drawing of an abandoned truck along the McCarthy Road in the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, near Strelna, Alaska.  I found this oldie tucked away in the willows just off the road during spring break-up, it would be quite hidden once the leaves returned in the summer.  I’m beginning this drawing with parallel ink lines in the darkest areas, then building up the lines to create values in a series of layers of cross hatching as shown in the detail below.
