The Patterns in the River

I am very excited about these images of the foam on the river as the tide came in today. There are so many patterns and variations.

I want to play with these in Photoshop and see what I can do with sandwiching the layers together to come up with a new interpretation.
I have spent the last few weeks immersed in colour after organizing for my art show in the village. After spending last weekend talking to friends and visitors about my colourful watercolours, it feels good this week to experience  the absence of colour.
Yesterday I pulled out my watercolours  and painted this remembered lake. The marks are created with epsom salts! It turns out to be the perfect type of salt to use for creating this effect.
It was exciting today to see this type of patterning repeated in the river.

One thought on “The Patterns in the River

  1. Beautiful Flora,

    I love it. It’s bizarre that we colorists every now and then need
    a break. Not sure why. I’m in Ottawa right now, and though the hotel room is beautifully colourful, the view out the window is in the colours of your beautiful painting — practically black and white. Quite lovely.

    XOXOXO Barbara
