I am just a little slow. After my last post I had to think about what I was doing. The pages in my Stained Glass pattern book are very hard and slick and nonabsorbent. Not the best for watercolor. For this work I laid down a layer of colored pencil, then watercolor, then more colored pencil and then more watercolor.

I picked this pattern because I walk my dog, Baxter, at Ft Benjamin Harrison State Park every morning. The forest is still largely green (I overload on green during the Indiana summers!) but there was a lovely gold and coral sunrise and the early sun hitting the tops of the trees gave them a glow. I tried to capture several shades of green, the blue sky and the drying grasses and undergrowth. I am still fiddling and diddling but am about ready to get serious!

    This does remind me of the outdoors. I love the spring and summer greens, too. Winter is hard for me with its lack of color. And the snow. And the cold. LOL

    Linda, this representation of morning colors is very appealing to me. I love the stylized tree!

  3. You are so right…Indiana is just gray and brown. Its very hard for me to deal with.

    Hi Linda,
    Oh, I am just not the blogger I used to be… It is so hard to fit all in anymore. Good for you on your docent work. These stained glass patterns are so interesting and I do see why you were drawn to them. I remember you like geometric shape.
