Clouds Blow in Over Wright's Lake, Where I Started Out Just an Hour Ago
I should note that I am not considering this a doc-umentary project - sometimes I'm drawing things from previous days and sometimes I'm combining elements from different places. For instance, I've been back from the mountains for two days and the clouds are from a viewpoint on a different trail than I used for the rest of it. And obviously I've been making lots of use of photos recently and not relying on always setting up my mirror en scene.
This is between Wright's Lake and Gertrude Lake on the Tyler Lake trail in Desolation Wilderness in El Dorado County in the state of California in the United States of America. I have taken many, many photos of this incredibly beautiful place, but this is the first time I have tried to draw it.
Artist, Analyst, Aikidoist, Alexander Technique Teacher-Trainee.Artist: I've been living, working and exhibiting in the San Francisco Bay Area for almost 20 years. My subject matter ranges from portraits of people and animals to almost abstract paintings of plant forms and light. I paint in oil, acrylics, & watercolors, with oil paintsticks and watercolor markers, and with digital media such as pressure-sensitive tablet and Studio Artist software. I draw with anything I can get my hands on - sticks on wet sand and fingers on frosted windows, chunks of wood freshly burnt into charcoal and children's toys such as etch-a-sketch and magna-doodle. I also take landscape, figure, animal and street photographs, have played with printmaking (mostly monoprints) and have dabbled with sculpture in steel, wood, clay and neon.
