“We look for a place that quiets time letting our senses become sharpened to our surroundings – hearing trees rustle, smelling grassy-weeds and seeing a slow-moving river. We become absorbed in the moment . . . ” by Mary
River Hideaway, a charcoal and graphite drawing (9×12) was created on Strathmore Bristol Vellum. Nearly the entire scene was done in charcoal with the exception of the river, there graphite was used for its reflective qualities. Charcoal was the choice medium giving the land depth and an overall softness to the atmosphere.
This Spanish scene was photographed by a pmp photographer and artist Juan Sandin. The first time I saw the image I immediately thought of Ernest Hemingway – I could see him writing one of his powerful novels tucked-away in this quiet place.
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for visiting ~
