I got up this morning and it was snowing. It has been snowing gently all day. This is my first attempt at painting a winter scene.
I didn’t post last weekend because Andrea & I went to Denver to meet with the Copyblogger team. Someone mentioned the importance of rain to the indigenous people who populated North America centuries ago. This painting is representative of said importance.
One of the techniques we learned this week is called reverse painting. It’s essentially painting everything but the silhouette of one or more objects. As you add each colour you add new silhouette(s).
The backyard includes a garden spot which our landlord’s parent had used for years. Since I wasn’t planning on planting too much this year I decided to build a couple boxes for raised beds. I planted squash & transplanted tomatoes the week after Father’s Day.
As soon as you step out of the reception centre at the New Brunswick Botanical Garden you can hear this waterfall. You have to walk a few yards before you can see it.
It was overcast today so the greens really stood out. The brook runs down through the middle of the Iris & Daylily garden.
