Iceberg Waves

watercolor, 20 x 20 cm Water, waves and ice

While painting the water, it reminded me of the edges of pack ice, so I kept adding more color to the bottom edges and then repeated the process on the sky, which reminds me of the Northern Lights. I have long been inspired by Inuit art – in particular the Cape Dorset artist, Kenojuak Ashevak. I love the direct simplicity of her lines, the limited palette and the blending of creature and landscape in her work.
