Morning Light in Redwood Forest

Artist: Kris Mordecai, United States
Artist Statement: This black and white drawing shows the morning light filtering through the trees and onto a small cabin in Monte Rio, California, perched on the side of a mountain and nestled into the ancient redwoods. Ink and water brush were used to depict the cool, damp air and the lushness of the surroundings. This drawing was made only a week before many of the nearby communities were devastated by the Northern California wildfires in October 2017.

MEDIA: Pen and water-soluble ink
SURFACE: Alpha Series – Heavyweight – 150 gsm – White – Medium Grain Finish
