Pen & Ink
"Pen-&-Ink Artist Martin J Benoit, WFA spent two winters in the Tahoe area
working at a local ski resort. On his off days, he traveled around the
lake, photographing and exploring, knowing one day he would produce a work
of Lake Tahoe. That work, entitled "Mountains Majesty", is a view through
Ponderosa pines of the northeastern part of the lake toward Incline
Village. Snow-capped mountain tops loosely reflect on the Lake's surface.
Crystal clear water in the foreground is accomplished in pen-&-ink by
drawing the shadows of the ripples of the water on the shallow lake bottom
near the shore and with a slight darkening of the rock surfaces below the
water. The result is a spacious and highly defined work showing the
diverse beauty of Lake Tahoe."
