August Noon




9"X6" Watercolour on paper

In all things it is almost always the transitions that are interesting. Spring and Fall are generally more interesting than high summer. In high summer the most interesting times are early morning and late evening. The first snowfall is magical but the iron grey of midwinter leaves a lot to be desired.

This has been such a wet summer, at least the grass is still green. By the middle of August all the colours seem tired and the greens looked dusty and grey at noon under heavy polluted skies (here in the "Golden Horseshoe" the ill effects of industry overhang everything).
