Ice World

Ice World

Art at ArcheanWeb: Part of the Negative Expanse Series

It is late winter in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Snow is starting to melt, but the lakes are still frozen solid. Remote, stark, and beautiful all describe this wilderness ice world. Overcast skies set against rock and ice provide a natural gray-scale scene that is captured in this artwork.

Ice world was created from a wintertime sketch. The oil on canvas technique is heavier than ink washes, but the expanse of white to light gray canvas above and below the mountains uses negative space to let the viewer’s eye flow across the painting, and see this frozen winter world.
