|pastel on UART 800 red|
First a water soluble graphite sketch, overpainted with black watercolor washes for the Notan. Then a pastel painting.
I am intrigued with the nearness of these two land masses and the way that boats slip between them.
We have been on the boat since the beginning of June and have not yet seen any whales. I think that the time will come soon and I am patient with the waiting. And grateful that, for the most part, whaling is a thing of the past.
