I spent a glorious last week in the North Cascades mountains, just a few hours from Seattle. I love this region, and it’s also near and dear to my interest in ice with the highest concentration of glaciers in the lower 48 states. I’m gathering new material and inspiration for a series of paintings I plan to develop this winter, to expand my North Cascades project. The wide panoramas of the high country particularly captivate me. Here is a small series I completed from the trip. See related sketches and learn about using ink and watercolor.
