Art from nature

#nature #art #autumn

Who needs oil on canvas

When the simplest of pleasures

Works it’s way on to the paper

With simple tools such as coloured pencil

When pressure is gently applied

Wiry shapes on the fallen leaves

Will appear…bringing the image of the leaf back to life

Changing

#octpowrimo

The trees are changing

As the temperature drops

As fast as the rain

Vibrant greens transform

Into a picturesque palette5

Of reds and browns

Signs of mercury

Travelling swiftly towards

The thermometer bulb

And deciduous trees all

Shed their leaves and seeds

In attempt to create new plants

Autumn leaves

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!

Two Quarrelling Brothers

I sat watching by the window

as two quarrelling brothers

traded blows over a tree outside

both lay claim on this tall green beauty

and each tried their hardest to get it for themselves

but as day turned into night

the tree stayed rooted to its spot

and neither brother got what they wanted

opting to play with some fallen leaves instead

Colourful

Colorful

could it be, the first signs of spring

out of all the signs of Mother Nature that

leap out at us,

of all those signs, green leaves appear and

radiant colours join them in the

form of beautiful blossoms … whilst

underneath them ?

luscious fruits

A response to the daily post prompt by inky

Small mushroom sits amongst the leaves and the grass

minding its own as the wildlife pass

getting what it can from nearby trees and the rain

taking up water from the natural drain

Autumn is a little bit odd for a deciduous tree

you see whilst the evergreens are keeping their leaves

the deciduous trees are getting ready to lose theirs

and slowly their leaves turn from green

to yellow, to red and then brown

and as they do, they drift in the air

before landing on the ground

Decayed Plane tree leaf in Enchanted Garden, BASIC, Salford

Structure

Old decayed leaf

melts into the moss on the car park tarmac

as it disappears into memory

but look at its veins and bones

as it fades into the mud

and you’ll see a remembrance

of the mighty tree

it once was part of.

Playing with pastels

Fuschia.jpg

One of my first pastel drawings

I’d been sat in the front garden, of the terraced house i live in and decided to bring some colour to my drawing pad

The trees in the garden were coming into bloom , whilst the fuschias and minature roses were coming into their own.  They danced around like ballerinas in the slight breeze

I tried to get some detail in, my talent more observant of the leaves than the petals.

But in what seemed to be a short while, i’d frittered away two whole hours on the garden bench.  Pausing on the hour to enjoy a Corned beef Sandwich and a cool lemonade.

Playing around with the Greens , Pinks and Reds.  With Blue making a cameo appearance.
