Have you ever seen an oceanliner cruising through the calm black of night; tiny lights peeking out from each porthole. That's what this piece reminds me of.
There is a lot of subtle drama here as the loon rises from the water - protecting his territory or perhaps just taking a stretch. Although this looks a lot like scratchboard, it is totally pen and ink and was the first I had done of this type of drawing. Hope you enjoy it - I did.
