Summer is fading, but she’s giving one last hoorah. Autumn rises to her challenge with a her best burst of colour. Rain kisses them both in reward.
I haven’t picked up a paintbrush to continue my practice in months. I just didn’t have the concentration in me. I decided today was the day.
I thought it started well…
Then I fluffed the forefront so the whole thing was just… Blah!
But then I mixed again, tried a different brush and technique, and I think I saved it a little.
It’s not perfect, but it is improving.
The last parts of summer are fading away and autumn is starting to dazzle us with her umber glory.
Spent some time reading in the garden today. Found this happy little fellow hiding away.
“Dappled” is such a fantastic word. So wholesome and yet it’s effect is so beautiful.
