At a workshop with the illustrator E.B. Lewis, I was encouraged to try painting in watercolor again. I composited a variety of references, including a watercolor by Winslow Homer and a makeshift “cairn” along my driveway to build this piece. In the scene, a storm approaches while a father and son hike in the White Mountains above the treeline. I plan on a pair of illustrations to accompany this one, an image from the summit and another showing the father and son rushing down from the summit to get out of the storm.
