The rowans have shed some berries and brown leaves and they are lying in the still green grass, which has a light twinge of yellow if you look closely. The Days are getting shorter and soon the Autumnal equinox will be upon us soon. I am enjoying the inspiration that this time of year grants one in the field of colours.
The autumn started with a bang in Iceland and a couple of weeks ago parts of northern Iceland got covered with snow and the grazing sheep got trapped, some of the were actually literally trapped in snow and had to be dug out by farmers and SAR members. Dramatic and hard on the ovine and the farming humans.
But back to colours. I have started a new piece based on the colours of the rowan's berries, the fading yellow and perhaps the green . It is the red that is fascinating me the most at the moment.
