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.
