Whitewater #2 pastel on board 5" x 7" $275
Rushing water is mesmerizing and exciting to watch. The sheer power behind thousands of cubic feet of moving water changes landscapes. In this image the water dives over submerged boulders to create a backflow that curls constantly. Kayakers can find places like this and ride the wave like a surfer in the ocean. Personally, I can sit and watch and listen to the force of nature and let time slip by.
Of note for the those collectors who enjoy acquiring firsts: this is the first pastel drawing that I have done. I enjoyed the way the chalky medium blended so easily to create certain effcts. So, there will surely be more pastels in the near future!
