Peace is this week’s challenge from 52Frames. It’s quite a good brief, but most things I thought of were either sunsets, water or both! As we have just done water I had to think again. I trawled through lots of albums. I had a picture in mind but when I found it, it was not quite as I remembered. I looked at temples, but they were not great for the small format I have chosen.
Then I recalled pictures I took one misty morning in Yellowstone. We were walking through the trees down to the river and it was so quiet and still. I put a light watercolour wash in the background and then did the trees with water soluble graphite pencils. I really love using these. I got them as a gift from someone years ago and they have become a firm favourite.
I hope the image captures the slightly eerie stillness. It does for me as I was there!!
