8.5"x5.25" Colored Pencil, unframed


Description of Spring Storm

Spring Storm is based on a photograph I took many years ago and shows the view from the front porch of my parents’ home in Central Michigan. The landscape in this small artwork plays only a supporting role to the tumultuous storm clouds in the background and the brilliant, slanting sunlight in the foreground. This dark/bright light is one of my favorite things about landscapes in real life and in art.

I used only lightfast pencils for this artwork, so it will stay fresh and new looking for decades if properly framed and displayed.

The paper is Clairefontaine Pastelmat, a highly archival paper originally developed for pastel artists. Paper color is Anthracite (dark gray,) which was the perfect color for this stormy landscape. There is ample framing margin around the artwork for matting and framing.

Custom framing is available upon request. Contact me for more information.
