Walk Two Hundred and Thirty-Four – No pushchair

bluebellwoodtrack
After the last few days, a walk without a pushchair feels like no exercise at all. Up to the bluebell wood after seeing another Nativity play at Xavier’s afternoon nursery.

I like the possibilities inherent in this viewpoint ... what's around the corner?

Once again, the scene is beautifully captured. I love leading paths and roads, this is no exception. Hope you have recovered the car and don't have to walk everywhere.

Is this snow? Or just using the white as background as its black and white? Like it enormously. Blogger or the new laptop have been misbehaving for me, never know if stuff is up or not.

Are you using ink this time? I like the contrast between the wet smudgy areas and the fine lines. It's good not to use lots of colours. You are a confident artist - I wish I couldn't be so prissy/fussy at times.

Hi everyone. This isn't snow - I'll let you know if we get snow this year - but I doubt we will as the temperatures have been higher than normal all year. And Wendy, I kind of accidentally 'discovered' this technique on the 2nd of December when I forgot my paints. It's a pen filled with water-soluble black ink and a waterbrush to soften the effect in parts.

Julie,
I must find some old bottles of coloured ink, (somewhere in the cupboard on the verandah) or else buy some new ones because I once had some fun with brush and ink and the ways new colours were accidentally formed by mixing on the paper.

Gorgeous! I love this ink and wash technique. It's so expressive and strong and soft all at once.

It's amazing how 'recognizable' it all is, even though it's 'just' lines, scribbles, dots and wash :)

I love the leading lines and agree with Alison, it's amazing how you can perfectly depict the scene, whatever medium you are using. I am so envious, particularly as i am spending a long time trying to make a log look like a log,lol.
