Millstone River, Nanaimo, where my lithe friend the little otter dwells

I like this! It's very "soft" on top.

And your title makes me think that you could do illustrations in this vein for The Wind in the Willows.

Yes, I was amazed at the "softness" (and movement) at the top when I got back and viewed it indoors. I'm happy with this piece. It's larger and done on bristol board.

The baby otter that was goofing around in the water and on the rocks sure as anything made the site like something from The Wind in the Willows in real time. Even though I haven't yet read the book, I can guess at it!

Hi Paul,

I would very much like to see this piece. It has a similar, yet different, feel from your other nature pieces.

Whether it's simply the "softeness" and "movement" I do not know. All I know is that the zoom feature is not doing it for me, and I would like to see this piece in person.

Hopefully that could be arranged!

For sure. The cheap digital camera I use likes to focus in certain areas of the picture plane while blurring other areas.
