There's something about spending time with nature that is so refreshing. I remember walking through vibrant crisp leaves in Autumn; it's a joy to see the how the seasons have transitioned. It was very necessary to wrap up warm this time, as the winds blew and the clouds started to give way to rain. The cypress tree leaves curved with the wind and even with the elements turning, I'm glad I brought my palette and paints with me...
The lengths of the pampas grass plant billowed gently in the breeze. The wheat-like fronds reminded me of the Mademoiselle Privé exhibition, where I read that Coco Chanel kept wheat bundles in her atelier for good fortune. Rain dew settled and the winter chill blew through my hair: I might as well embrace the temperamental British weather! Rose bulbs provided bursts of colour; it won't be long until they bloom into life.
Spindly branches remind me of a network of threads entwined on a fabric canvas. Crimson flashes entered the subtle colour palette, complementing rich greens and a white sky. Windswept, the swaying tassels of my scarf mimicked the carefree branches. Bead-like berries from the holly bush glimmered like rubies against the evergreen. They would be perfect to add a vivid touch to some art.
The majestic fir tree brings back the festive feel of the months just gone. In the distance, a cluster of ivy-entwined branches stood tall and inviting. Treading through, it felt as though I had entered an enchanted forest... I half expected fawns and woodland creatures to make an appearance. Weaving between the sturdy lengths, creeping ivy guided the eye towards the skies.
Sky-sweeping leaves formed a canopy above, creating an otherworldly feel. Fanning out, they enshroud an arching doorway leading to a captivating view. Sometimes the idea of a hidden garden which you can escape is what you need. Glimmering gold beads glistened away, adding sparkle. The red berries decorated the arch, as though they were entwined rubies. Creating art is a way to remember the mood of a magical day.
