A steep learning curve. I allowed the paper to be too wet for the last wash, and colour crept across under some of the masking. Lots of fun and a surreal result. Also it is obvious that I have to be more aware of contrasts. I may do more with this but probably not. I will certainly be doing more pouring though.
You can see from the following black and white copy that a better value range was needed.
And Bert is trying out his coat…
while the trees are shedding theirs,
and dancing into autumn.
for the grand leap
The world is full of colour on our walk, and tuis are calling from the taller trees. I love the way the sun slants down the weathered trunks, and makes a mosaic of the leaves.
brushing our world
the filtering of sunlight
through autumn leaves
across the grass
blazing into winter
a cold blue sky
