Summer: Woman with Horseshoe Crab
Silverpoint on prepared paper, 18 x 18"
This silverpoint drawing is the precursor of an egg tempera painting of the same size, part of my "Four Seasons" series. Here I've drawn on images recalled from working and playing at Horseshoe Cove on Sandy Hook, inside the National Park's Gateway National Recreation Area. I especially enjoyed reducing the surface ripples on the bay to a repeatable pattern.
