Olmstead’s Island White Water
This small study represents one of my favorite scenic spots not far from where I live. I drew it on location and applied the colors in my studio. Because it was meant to be just a study, I concentrated on giving the rocks “the treatment” and did not worry too much about embellishing the surrounding trees, as I would have done were I working larger and with a more malleable medium on something more “important”! Well, I decided that small (and tentative) is sometimes just as significant in the whole scheme of things, which is why this sample little item now appears on my website.
