Commitment: the state of being emotionally impelled to do something. My commitment is to making art, loving life and doing well.

Daily Artworks... my continuing challenge for 2015: Observe and record. Record and observe. And stretch - s-t-r-e-t-c-h - myself.
What will I discover?

Open Water - Tonal Variations on Rice Paper - 4

Open Water - Spring on the Churchill River

Tonal Variations on Rice Paper - 4


Graphite on rice paper, 7" x 9"


This is HB pencil on the shinier side of the rice paper. The dark tones laid down fairly easily, but the paper was very unforgiving when I attempted to create a very light shade.

Spring is here, the ice is breaking up and there are ducks in the open water. The reflection of the sun on the snow gives a brilliant overall light to the landscape that you don't see any other time of the year.
