Fallen fencePosted: April 10, 2016
It makes it so much easier to find a scene to sketch when the lights and darks are clearly defined. Today this fallen fence seemed interesting because of the sunlit wooden slats against the dark tree and wheelbarrow. With the fence down, the wheelbarrow — situated in a dark corner of the yard — gets much more light on it. And with the ground still too cold to work on, it really has no other job to do besides look good. For now, I’m still enjoying the light created by the fence opening, but in a few weeks when gardening season starts, I will probably start to wonder why the neighbour still hasn’t gotten around to repairing it.
