This is an original drawing of a river crossing in Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve, in Newfoundland, Canada. It is referencing a photo I took on a guided hike to see the Mistaken Point fossils, a Unesco World Heritage Site. It was the best of Newfoundland weather: 12C, so foggy it was like walking through rain hung in the air, in the most beautiful rolling hills of scrubby bushes, ferns, bakeapple flowers and dwarfed evergreens.
The crossing was right at the stream's delta, so there are tide lines along the shore of seaweed and sea snail egg sacks and driftwood and shells. We crossed on a series of stepping stones, some half-immersed in the water, and my hiking sticks were the only things keeping me from falling in up to my thighs in cold brackish water. It was incredibly beautiful and a landscape I want to draw and paint again and again - so here is my first piece in what I hope will be a series.
It was drawn using a Hunt 101 Imperial pen nib and FW Acrylic ink, on a sheet of 110lb acid-free, recycled paper. All materials are archival and permanent. The paper is approximately 8 x 11" and ready to mat, frame and hang. It is initialed and dated in the lower left corner.
This piece will be protected in an acid-free clear bag, then secured on stiff foamcore, then packed in a waterproof padded mailer and shipped to you. All original art will be shipped with tracking and insurance equal to the value of the piece.
All prices are in CAD.
