Inukshuk


Inukshuk
20.3cm x 22.9cm. 8in x 9in.
Watercolour

This is a commission. It is a way pointer, or Inukshuk, I think. I have not been to Canada but as I painted it I tried to get a little of the atmosphere so I surrounded myself with pinecones and listened to a recording of loons (honestly!)
It is very good to paint in watercolour again, think I will do a few more. I have documented each stage of this painting and might blog the making over on Muddy Red Shoes after I have finished the landscape one that is going on now.
Obviously, as it is a commission, it is not for sale. I hope he likes it, he hasn't seen it yet.
