Drawings by Walter Russell
The landscape sketches come from Russell's early work "Early Whisperings", in which he describes his inner experiences in nature.
In his book »Early Whisperings« Walter Russell documents his early inspirations. »The first great inkling of the grandeur to come was in May of 1878, when I was seven. I had had strange premonitions of the coming experience for months perhaps even for a year but the glory of the experience, when it did happen, was less mystifying and more understandable than the premonitions, which always left me deeply wondering.
