La Dordogne and a walnut grove: catching autumn colours 4.

The Dordogne is such a beautiful river and with the walnut groves just beside it makes for magnificent scenery, especially in October with its multitude of colour.

I am still doing landscapes “the new way”;, although I am beginning to think it isn’t the real me. My sketches are much more loose and more spontaneous, albeit not always pretty and correct. But it is me. The landscape sketches I am doing lately feels more like small paintings done in sketchbooks. They are much more detailed and take much longer than my usual way of sketching. I am still enjoying it though. Maybe I will find that golden median between sketching like this and my usual style..

A vinyeard and a valley..catching autumn colours 3.

I am having so much fun with these landscape sketches. Making a lot of mistakes, but every now and then, there is a successful stroke or a colour or a line and then I can burst with excitement. Most of these sketches are greens. Our hills are very green and at the moment, all shades of greens and yellows. the moire I sketch, the moire I experiment with green and the more confident I become in mixing greens. where I have always mixed my greens on the paper, I have now switched to mixing puddles of greens on my palette…as I say…I am just having fun!

Landscape sketches, catching autum colours 2.

I am working hard on landscapes in watercolour. And October is just getting more and more beautiful by the day. I am almost hyperventilating, fearing that I won’t be able to gt enough sketches and paintings done before autumn moves into winter.
