Dragonscale Paintings: Sweet Pea

12 June, 2017
Here’s another of my abstract paintings…

I loved playing around with this colour. In my paint box it’s actually purple. But painting onto very wet paper dilutes the colour. The overall effect makes me think of wild sweet peas – that mass of pinkness!
I was inspired by Elisa Choi Ang’s workshops over at SkillShare Why don’t you try Elisa’s workshops? She makes painting accessible to everyone!

This is one of the first Freyan Verse I wrote. Inspired by Spring, I tried to capture the different scenes I observed on my way to and from work. Click on the link to find out how to read this poem both vertically and horizontally. You can write your own, if you wish!

Snow – 8

28 January, 2014
At dawn, a pink line of sky bordered above by lettuce hem smudged grey cloud, as if a pink fire raged beyond, reflected in the brightening sky. Pink turns to peach and then fades to pale yellow light as the sun rises. Snow clouds now cover the sky, threatening with fatal, falling flakes.

Peach-pink horizon where sky and sea meet red hued woodland, as if blood drenches the land; am I here at home or in the Barren Lands?

Pink halo above the tree studded skyline, bathing grey clouds beyond the tower with fierce light; am I in the car driving to work or with Gwynn in the tower, waiting for rescue?
