Olympic National Park Forest Images

 


Ozette Lake is just inland of the location of Scott's
Sand Point painting. Here on the easel is a beautiful drawing in oil pastel.

If you're quiet in the Hoh rain forest, you may run
into some of the native species. Here we see an
Elk (Cervus elaphus ) as he munches his lunch.
 


Elks don't make good models, but trees
are quite a different story. The lushness
of the forest is captured in this charcoal drawing.

That's a good sized two man tent being dwarfed
by the fallen giant in the background.
 


If you stare at this picture long enough, your
pulse will slow and you will feel refreshed.

I think I need a larger dose.

Scott said that as he was driving down out of the Olympic forest he passed this mountain goat who seemed to be on his way to work
in the opposite lane. The goat probably got to where he was
going and realised that he'd run
all that way, but he couldn't even remember how he'd got there...
 


If you feel better after viewing a 600 pixel wide
image of quiet paradise, imagine how it would be to enjoy the quiet rainforest while painting this beautiful work of art.
