Spring shadows


Posting a slightly older painting today. I was browsing back through my sketchbook and found this one, and discovered how much the sun has changed it´s course since the beginning of May. I can see these windows from my home, and this particular wall doesn´t have any tree shadows on it anymore, it´s in the shade almost all day now. Funny how the light changes slowly slowly over the year.

12.5 x 15 cm, watercolours on Fabriano Artistico hot press paper.

hi nina i love your blog - found you thru edm but have forgotten my yahoo password so can't reply to you there. This blog is so lovely - your style is very assured and your art work and projects really impressive. i love the flying sketchbook. am thinking of doing an altered book circle which is similar. i've just started a blog but i'm not in the same league as you with my drawing (but that's ok it's still fun!) great to see your stuff - very inspiring. thank you.

Gorgeous dappled sunlight...nice brushwork! Funny we were just commenting on the changing path of the sun here in Arizona...it really is an amazing thing!
