A sketch from Newfoundland

Green Gardens trail in Gros Morne
I just returned from an exciting trip to Newfoundland. This was my first visit there and I found quite a few surprises. I spent a week at Gros Morne national park hiking and enjoying the wilderness. There was too much to see and do, so I didn't find much time for painting but I've collected ample material for future watercolors. The above was the only sketch I managed to do en plain air. While that day the sea was really as calm and inviting as it looks, the water was too cold to actually swim in it. The nature is beautiful and the park offers quite a variety of landscapes.
