Change is coming

It was a sunny day… then dark clouds rushed in.  In the foreground, still happy sunshine, further back mostly greys, with some flashes of green, blue and white. Very interesting to see those contrasts so strongly and so quickly, a bit like life sometimes.

Shells in red

Walking on the beach I found a whole set of simple shells, all slightly different. I put them in groupings, played with the set up till I found this three-pronged figure that gave me the movement I was looking for. I then played with the lines and came to this.

Magnolia

Walking in the cemetery, I saw a dark pink magnolia, some parts looked almost red. The play of the shadows on grass and gravestones in the brightness of the day made for an interesting composition of opposites : dark and light, bright and dull colour, horizontals, verticals and diagonals, so I had a go at it.

Rhythm

While walking on the beach I picked up some shells. I was intrigued by their form and started drawing. I had some ink and watercolour pens and started playing with the mixture of the shellform and the contrast in colour and line. This is the result.

Shells

Looking at shells I was fascinated by their subtle forms and colour, so I tried to paint a few and show their subtlety, beauty and forms in this watercolour.

View from my window

Another sketch of the view from my window. Slightly different, every season, every day , often every hour.  Always a delight.
