Walk Seventy-six – Windy triptych

walk76

Jersey Farm Woodland Park, because there are lots of benches and after yesterday’s accident I wanted to be as comfortable as possible. One of the benches I sat on had a memorial to councillor Bill Morris who worked very hard to ensure that the park was created. I’m so glad Bill worked so hard because the park creates a green space between the Jersey Farm housing and Sandridge village and thus prevents our village being absorbed into suburban sprawl.

Wow, a park that looks like a field. As always, fabulous watercolour work.

These are wonderful, little paintings! I love it that you did three that make up a whole, from different views.

These are beautiful and so instructive--I was trying to paint a windy wetlands and couldn't figure out how to show the grasses blowing. Now I know! I truly love your paintings. I hope your foot is better soon.

Yes, I love these yellow, green and blue ones too and this little tryptich works beautifully. What a wiggly route you've taken. I guess the development of the olive process is lost in time but I'm going to see if I can find anything out - the human mind is amazing

Hashi, it is a sort of controlled wilderness kind of park. Tami and Alison I kept wandering about trying to find one view point to spnd a bit of time on. But I couldn't choose so that's why in the end I did three smaller views. Jana, I'm not too sure that I do know :) Penny the composition is the orderly graphic designer in me - *first set up a three cloumn grid*

I'd frame this if I had painted it - it's delightful!

That's very kind, Felicity. I'm really short of walls to hang pictures on in this house so I have to be selective (the main rooms are open plan and the walls have windows, fireplaces, shelves so hardly any picture space)
