Rough water pencils…..

July 16, 2011


Below are five pencils of scenes depicting rough water.  As previously mentioned and revealed in interviews, Monte’s renditions were often based on his visual observations and from memory.

It is quite possible the pencils of the rough water scenes below were heavily based upon Monte’s observations from his canoe trips to the Arctic Circle and Canada.

In the below image, lightly drawn trees and large rocks similar to those from the north can be seen in the back ground.

Below, Monte added flying waterfowl and possibly a setting sun, but with the emphasis still being on the rough water.
