(Leaves, moss and a small hidden waterfall) - This is quite
simply a dream location in my eyes. What more could an artist want
- a small waterfall finding its path through a complexity of mossy
rocks, surrounded by a variety of trees including some birches with
wonderfully marked bark and then to top it all, a bit of watery
winter sunshine filtering through the trees on the skyline. This
called for colour, yes, me! - colour!.
My initial ink mixing was leaning towards the greens
but they felt too cold and simply didn't create the right mood.
By adding red and a bit of yellow and then umber to the mix, I found
a much softer and warmer palette of autumn colours, although as
explained below, my greys called out to me and I eventually printed
this as a varied edition.
