Dionisio Park Sandstone

The sandstone rocks on the shores of the Gulf Islands are eroded into wave-like forms, and also pitted with irregular holes. These natural sculptures offer an intriguing artistic subject, which I have explored with black conte pencils on student grade watercolour paper–not the best for painting, but great as a surface for drawing. Even strong darks have a certain sparkle of white specks from the paper’s texture.
