Serpentinite Crystal Island

Colour Painting - Crystal Island
, , ,

This gouache painting is about 7 x 9″ in size, on watercolour paper. It’s an exploration of the geological identity of some parts of Gros Morne National Park, in Newfoundland, Canada. The green serpentine crystals are growing from the granite and serpentinite mix of Gros Morne, specifically the Tablelands. The dark spruce and fir trees are silhouetted against distant hills and rolling fog. This piece is my love letter to that gorgeous park and the sense of magic it has.
