GitanyowOn a trip up north I took this photo of one of the totems of Gitanyow with a long house in the distance. This is a village that Emily Carr visited and painted these very totems! I read about her visit in one of her journals.
The photo is sanded and rubbed water soluble oil pastels. The background is walnut ink, on the bottom half the text was sprayed with a mister to blur the words in a wet on wet like technique. While still wet the top had walnut soaked string dropped on and let dry.
