Queda e Ascensão (Fall and Rise)
Watercolor on paper.
latest updates: fall
A page inspired by the first day that really felt like autumn. Gray skies, cool winds, diffuse sunlight; it was wonderful.
A page in micron pen, just thinking about the end of summer and the heat that still lingers.
Wisconsin Colour – Watercolour
From my journal Wednesday 5th October 2011
We stopped at a small lay-by to stretch our legs and to allow John’s dog, the Rustman, a chance to sniff around. At first there was not much to see then, just around a corner, some trees caught my eye. The colour was fantastic and varied. This was something worth getting out the car for. Little did I know there was much more to come
The trees in America’s fall were spectacular. Its hard to imagine that they will now be under much snow but that would also be a great opportunity to paint them.
Impression of Autumn Leaves
Another autumn-inspired page, this one in various colors of micron ink and imagined leaf shapes.
Fall is my favorite season; the sun, the crisp, falling leaves, the frequent mist and rain, the cold night and chill mornings; and often inspires many pages of sketches and doodles.
A page inspired by watching the shadows of the trees outside the window grow long, stretching into evening here in West Virginia; done in micron ink in my Uncharted Waters sketchbook.
