Sunny October Days
I sketched it in pencil and then painted it with three colours of my acrylic ink.....Flame red, Yellow ochre and Sap Green. The red and yellow created all the orange tones. I used the red to darken the green. Look at all the different shades on the plate, created by mixing the three colours.
Every where looked so fresh and green after lots of rainfall. The rain water drains off the higher ground and the moors, last week this road had water running down each side and it caused some flooding in the village. Many homes were sand bagged to protect the water from getting into their houses, lots of stones and debris was carried downhill as the water gathered speed and scattered it along the roads. The drains struggled to take the volume of water as many rivers swelled and burst their banks and many local roads were flooded.
See you soon. Millyx
