This illustration of the view from Corcovado mountain was created with acrylic and ink on acrylic paper. It’s my expressive take on the iconic statue surrounded by an emerald green landscape. The blue waters of Botafogo Bay and the Atlantic Ocean also fade into a hazy horizon. I’ve never had the pleasure of travelling to South America, but if the opportunity arises the colour and vibrancy of Rio would be a tempting starting point!
