Ice Floes at the Arctic Circle
14" x 17"
Very early on in the cruise I found a spot on the bridge of the Healy where I could sit on the floor with my back against the front of one of the consoles and look out a floor level window, and I spent hours there watching and drawing the ice. I made this drawing by toning the entire paper gray with powdered graphite and then using an eraser to "draw" the white ice floes by erasing them away.
