Charcoal Drawings

This series of drawings explores the relationships of rocks and water in two Maine coastal locations: Islesboro, a large island in the middle of Penobscot Bay off of Lincolnville, and McGlathery Island, a small, uninhabited island south-east of Stonington. The drawings are done chiefy with soft vine charcoal or Conté crayon. The McGlathery Island pieces are drawn on antique handmade Umbria paper, usually used for printing etchings, given to my by an old family friend in Wisconsin who studied etching in the early 20th C. with Joseph Pennell, who was well known for his etchings, and illustrations of WW I.
