One of the most beautiful places on earth.... the Yukon Wilderness. I am so grateful that I live in such a beautiful landscape. It really inspires me.
This little work is a Mixed Media Painting. It has watercolour, graphite, ink, conte, and coloured pencil on 300 lbs Arches Rough Watercolour paper. I break all the rules with my watercolours. I work them and work them and then work them some more! I remember reading about Rembrandt once and how he did his watercolours and sketches, I felt so grateful for reading this little commentary on him, I felt not so alone. He would grab whatever was close at hand and rub and scratch until he got the desired effect he was looking for. Yes! I do the same.
