Did the original pencil drawings on which this is based in the Spring of 2007.

I hardly ever continue a drawing to an opposite page in a sketchbook, in case it’s good enough to finish with color or shading. Despite the passing years this one stood out enough to develop it by going to the trouble of cutting the pages out, scanning them as close together as possible, whiting out the seam with 3-D Paint software, and then filling in and finishing the entire reprinted version. Thought it best to leave it in black and white so that the water surface remained easier to read.

9 5/8 x 7 1/2 inches, dipping pen and ink wash on printed copy of two compiled inked pencil drawings done on-site in 2007. This version finished in 2019. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited edition run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP ink which meets the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
