Sunday Sketches

I was inspired by a large painting at a client's house. He tells me it is a real farm near Guelph. He explained which details the artist had fudged to make it more interesting. I fudged it even more! The original was a winter scene, but I've had enough of snow for now.

Funnily enough, I began in black and white, then added a bright red roof, and some greenish grass. I toyed with the idea of keeping it black and white, but I knew that it wouldn't scan well enough.
Then, going to hubby's scanner, I accidentally scanned it in black and white!
That was only because the last thing I scanned was a document. sigh.
Serendipity. It scanned pretty well.

Something happened in my mind's eye though, Jenn... as I gaze upon this scene, there is undoubtedly a red roof and spring freshness on the ground... &*> YAM xx

Lovely sketch! If something is good, it doesn't matter which color it is. It looks perfect in black and white.

It did indeed scan well and I agree with Yamini, I can project color into it through my imagination. But, it is late winter or spring to me because there are no leaves on the trees. I love a country view ... Very nice, Jenn.

Guelph, John McCrae was born there, and wrote the poem " In Flanders Fields ". Tomorrow in NZ is Anzac Day , 25th April, when we remember all those who served overseas in the wars, and the red poppy a symbol that is worn nation-wide. So your sketch is so timely. Love the windows on the little home and chimney smoke. B&W is perfect.

Fudging is good and sometimes necessary.
