Landscape as Muse

Season One - Episode 7

Sturgeon Gill Point with Ewa Tarsia
On the far northwestern reaches of Lake Winnipeg, the world's eleventh largest lake, there are massive limestone cliffs and an elaborate network of caves. This is Sturgeon Gill Point. The startling aspects of the natural rock formations are an immediate source of inspiration for painter Ewa Tarsia. She creates numerous pastel sketches concentrating on the hues and tones of the rocks -- just the beginning for a series of vivid colour paintings and prints.
