Fall Geese #64


In the valleys of western Oregon, where I live, fall colors are muted. We sort of ease from greens to warm greens to greenish golds and finally trees take their turns loosing their leaves. Nothing glorious like the midwest where I grew up. Still, there is a rustic beauty to this time of year. And if we need a dose of red there are a few fabulous reds in the mountains.

This was painted with a 20 min time limit .... Pelikan fountain pen with watercolor added. I actually started out planning to draw a flock of geese, but they did me a favor. Most immediatly disappeared over the rise. I had plenty to do painting these three.

I really love these geese Elva. They are so fun to watch and paint. Great use of your 20 minutes.

...twenty minutes is a wonderful way to capture the moment. I love the background, especially the left side. I totally feel movement and time in the piece...

I like this loose sketch with it's soon-to-be-fall colors. You've captured the geese wonderfully!
