During the past month, we spent several weeks on Long Island, Nova Scotia. Plein air work encourages an immediate spontaneous interpretation of the landscape.  Drawings are on Fabriano 300 lb. hot press watercolour paper using permanent inks, then toned with acrylic, with additional drawing over the paint, keeping the work lose and free.  Abstraction and pattern evolved.  I have included location photographs taken as reference for possible later studio work.
