Hand Drawn Map of Dartmouth, NH

With a vast Winter storm predicted, the studio is a good place to be. Prior to starting a big map of Dartmouth College I decided to begin with a small one as part of the necessary research. A note about scale- in cold weather, distances are always greater than anticipated. Watercolor and ink on paper, 15 x 11 “
