Monochrome Soft Pastel, 22 x 30 inches
This pastel painting is of a creek that I have visited many times. This particular meandering part of the creek is one of my favourite sections as it offers many creative possibilities with the change in seasons and water levels. The creek is at the bottom of a ravine and traverses areas of uneven terrain. During periods of increased water flow, the force of the water can erode and wash away bends in the shoreline…trees and all. Learn more about this artwork.
“We retain traces of different depth and for different lengths of time of the impressions we have obtained from nature. The selection of these impressions determines all the characteristics of the work, that is to say, they are the “being”, the character of the painter.” – Ferdinand Hodler (1853-1918)
