On the Marsh - Lin Frye

This simple landscape was created wet in wet with Winsor Yellow and Paynes Grey - a combination that seemed to create its own mood and yet matches the weather this morning. I awoke to the tail end of a rain-filled night - though the total rainfall was less than 1/4" ... far less than we need to even put a dent in the drought conditions and dry soil.

The see-saw of temperature fluctuations continues - today we're already in the 60s and by Friday we should be in the 80s! Each day brings more flowers to bloom - but they'd shine a bit brighter if only they had more moisture to nourish them ...

Stay well ...

  3. Very pretty. Just goes to show you that you don't need tons of different colors to produce a beautiful image.

  4. This really has some atmosphere! Very nice. We haven't gotten our usual rain for March. Looking at the averages, March is our rainiest month. Guess we aren't leaving our drought behind either.
