Burnt Sienna

Colours, Poetry

Salford, 15th September

#CYW #BurntSienna

I recall a leather chair

the smell of it as I sat in it in the morning

it’s sound as I got my back into its folds

it squeaked – like a mouse looking for food

Looking out beyond the glass

in a warm seat

looking out for snowmen

beyond the garden fence

Sitting there quietly

watching the snowflakes

fall to the ground

whilst warming my hands on a hot mug

Muddy Footprints

Footprints on wet mud

Camping out in the wilds, has its disadvantages

As the weather can be particularly nasty

Making your way across the field to the washroom as

Persistant little raindrops land on your head

If you gave it some thought – you would have moved the tent

Now everyone will know who disturbed their sleep – as you’re

Going to leave a trail – right up to your tent!

Brown Feathered Canada Geese

Bringing an aire of nature to the painters palette

Red mixes with yellow and that colour goes darker as

Orange meets black and blue

Wild Animals have this colour in their fur , feathers and quills

Notably the geese who fly across town

Hope you liked this short acrostic for #CYW – Here’s another link to a poem with a brown theme – https://inkdrops.blog/2019/09/08/chocolate-4

Autumn leaves

Poetry

Another post from inky via allpoetry.com

The squirrels are a scurrying

amongst the fallen leaves

searching out the conkers

hiding in the trees eaves

Carpet, multi coloured

paints a walker a scene

an autumnal view, that carries a few

colours, of red, gold, brown, green

And as bird watcher goes a twitching,

the animals go have some lunch

As the watcher goes round, he cant help but make a sound

as the leaves underneath him go crunch

But lets give our thanks to the Autumn,

who’s colours are warm and so bright,

as Winter arrives, the frost and snow thrives

turning the leaves on th’floor white!

Roman Remains at Oludeniz , Turkey in Watercolour by B.F.Kirkham

 

 

Salford, Sunday 29th January 2017

A Watercolour painting of the Roman ruins at Oludeniz, Turkey

Mum and Dad were out of the house this weekend, visiting my little sister and her family,

A marathon session of CSI, NCIS and FA Cup football were planned – and went very well,

(Manchester Utd winning 4-0 on the big tv)

but in between times, i’ve been painting scenes from old holiday snaps and diaries

Rough pencil marks guided me around the page as i blocked out the scene in paint.

Colours used on this one –

Cerelean Blue for the sea,

Burnt Umber for the sand

Sap Green for the plants on the path

Vermillion, Burnt Umber, Crimson and Yellow Ochre for the bricks

Admittedly, I like Almonds….

Like – when they’re scattered liberally over a bakewell sponge or

Made in to powder, and mixed with other ingredients for marzipan

Overall, the taste is really great in a cake

Nutty and sweet – from the seed that escapes from that

Delicately pitted light brown casing

Some would say – they’re delicious! (especially in chocolate!)

To some,

an absolute must – turning nut – brown

nicely under the summer sun

 

Toasting under the sun’s rays

As they enjoy a ice cool drink by the

nautical waters

 

To others, an unachievable goal

As they sit – in the sun – for a few seconds

Next minute – despite the sunblock – red as a lobster

 

Typical reaction to the sun’s appearance ?

Adolescent Teens hitting the beach towels

Noon till sundown

 

Turning occasionally

As they lie on sunloungers listening to tunes

Next to the swimming pool

 

Taken after the damage is done

A dose of soothing after-sun (or calamine)

Next morning’s sun worship – spent covered up
