First Light

Charcoal and ink on Strathmore board

This is another from the "First Time Love" series I did in the mid 1980s, and also one that I am very proud of. Like the others it is charcoal and ink and ink wash on heavy Strathmore board. I added some touches of white gouache on the foreground rocks.

Two young lovers embrace in a secret place with a stunningly beautiful scenic view that they discovered together while walking an unknown wilderness trail. Here they experience mutual love and desire for the first time, while a vast and beautiful landscape that represents all the possibilities and wonders of their adult lives together is presented to them by the morning light.
