02.12.2020 Today’s finds….

Hello Everyone,

Today I was inspired by the first writing task and have been charting the colours of the sky and shifting clouds. I’m currently waiting for dusk to fully set in and to see pink and purple fill the sky. For anyone that has been following this blog since summer you might remember that I did a post on the colours of the sky and viewing the sky like an ocean?

I’m going to scribble down lots of words to describe the shifting colours as night closes in. Later I will craft my words into a poem…I hope to share that with you when it’s finished.

I also enjoyed the silhouettes of trees against the sky, and up close the colours and textures of bark. I thought about my paint box and how some of the yellow tones in the clouds are similar to the lichen on trees.

I hope you made some interesting connections with nature too!

Best wishes,
