Inspiration: The Three Pools at Little Qualicum Falls

Little Qualicum Falls on Vancouver Island provided a lot of inspiration, especially the three pools – one was all shimmery sea green water and sun light, one black and deep and the other palest clear green with bluish stones in its depths.

The ‘three pools’ on two pages of my sketch book; crayon and gouache.
