Reeds and winter branches, Groby Pool

Reeds and winter branches, Groby Pool. Mixed media. Vivien Blackburn

A quick sketch of that filigree of tangled branches and reeds against the water, done in acrylic paint, ink, biro and pencils. It was COLD!

You sure captured the moment, Vivien.:) I can feel the cold from here. I admire your eye for beauty in all the dreariness.

Cold maybe, but I love it.

Take a look at this on somebody else's blog where they've got the image coming up. The widget crops in still further and I think I like it even better - maybe because (as discussed last night) it becomes slightly less real and a bit more abstracted?

I'd love to see you do more like this - you obviously have a thing for tangles!

Dinah and Katherine - thanks :>)

Yes, I like it cropped tighter too Katherine - and on a large canvas :>) and more abstracted
