Colours of November
Around here people wait anxiously for the cold and snow to come but during the time before its arrival there is a period of transition, marked by grey skies, rainy days and conditions that send most indoors in search of heat and comfort. For me, that time also has become an exciting period to paint. The sombre limited colour palette puts the focus on composition with the monochromatic quality lending a sense of what makes black and white images so intriguing. Good rubber boots, warm toques, gloves and windproof jackets are all it takes to make venturing out during this time of transition in relative comfort, something myself and Brownie do every day, looking for the next striking image to appear.
