Re: 01 01 2012 my day to day journal....

Fidgement, Doug, Pene, Debby, John, Janet, Rainy (yep, t'is watercolours) thesnowybee and Joan, thanks for visiting.
Have a couple more to upload, fingers crossed...

..the mild weather we've been having means we have confused flowers in the garden, here's a little bunch I picked on 9th January. We have since had a couple of frosts that have culled most of these unseasonal blooms. Pen n ink n watercolour...



..this one I sketched from a photo I took as we came back from our walk on the 15th January. The sun was going down behind the trees and the red sky silhouetting them, and the reflections in the lake were stunning. This one was sketched in inktense pencils and water sol pencils...

Poor confused flowers. These are both so lovely. The sunset on the lake is beautiful.

Nice job on the flowers, and very nice palette on the landscape!

beautiful sunset scene with lovely reflections. it makes me feel chilly looking at it, probably all those bald trees. I like that one very much

These are lovely. I love what you did with the ink tense and water solubles. Very well done. Our plants are also confused with the warm spell we're getting. I wish the weather were more dependable...

Hello Scattykat - so glad you've started another journal - your sketches are absolutely lovely in their simplicity - they remind us to look at the beautiful, simple details of life, when often we try to take in the whole picture and miss so much of what is going on. They are like a daily blessing. Will definitely be following along. Hope you have a very happy 2012.

The sundown is gorgeous, such brilliant colours and you did a great job on the reflection.

It's a bit weird to be able to pick such a beautiful bunch of flowers in winter Around here, roses are blooming like crazy. Normally, the most you'd see would be daisies, who are indestructible.

Re: 01 01 2012 my day to day journal....

Hi Vivian, Patk, Debby, John, Janet, Rainy, Fay, Robert, Fidgement, Gill and Jennifer, so nice to see you all here. First a basket of veggies waiting to give us a lovely stew...



Went for a walk to the local village to collect a parcel and buy our French stick. The roundabout in the middle of the village has a garden on it, with lots of little rounded mounds of different coloured greens. The lovely silver birches have been well knobbled, pollarded is the term I believe, but I so dislike it. Often the trees are so disfigured and hacked about they don't recover. The plus side here is that the church can now be seen clearly from this side...

Wonderful sketches Kat, hope you enjoyed your stew.

Yes sadly pollarding is very popular in France, the trees look mutilated in winder.

I feel like I am on a trip through France, Kat! These are all so lovely. Some of our flowering bushes here are getting confused by the mild weather that we have had too...and then they got covered with snow. I really like your sketch of the village.
