11"x14". Original watercolor
This is one of my favorite places to go. Located right off Grand Marais, MN, this is a peninsula of land with deep cut rocks and very flat rocks. Such a contrast. It has a very peaceful feeling, so I often will sketch while taking in its beauty. I used plastic wrap on the rock area and actually directed the plastic wrap in different directions to create the deep cracks and crevices.
