Sarah Uhl—Rear View Mountains


In July 2014, I hiked up to Sahale Glacier camp in the North Cascades to learn how to draw mountains while sitting in front of them. Turns out it's hard to draw them when you're engulfed in a cloud and all you can see is white. Just like drawing mountains at home, I had to use a sense of imagination. To my delight, I woke up the next morning feeling as if I had become a part of my imaginary picture, as there is nothing more surreal than waking up above the clouds and looking out at a sea of peaks.
