Edge of the Forest #33


A Yellowstone sketch: The gnarly roots of the tree first caught my attention, and then I noticed an elk antler nearby. I was walking at the time, a long way from the car and in a place where we couldn't park ... so I photographed it and painted in on a day the weather kept us in.

Pelican fountain pen and watercolor.

Oh my, Elva, I love how you handled the depth of the forest here, with the use of whites. I want to keep this one to study from when doing my own wooded scenes.

A beautiful painting and a scene I distinctly remember from being in Yellowtone.

This is really a wonderful picture...the denseness of the forest has been so well captured!
