Sketchbook Project – Nature’s Artwork on the River

Pages Forty-one and Forty-two:

I took a short break from doing two posts a day, but I’m back to the sketchbook, NORTHWEST WINTER TEXTURES, as well as Breathing Space. This find was marvelous for showing the variety of textures and creative beauty of nature. The more I looked the more I saw, the fir encased in dripping ice, and the way the fall leaves had wrapped the branches when caught in the high water that once was. The stack of branches worn smooth from rushing waters and caught together in the air above the river. And the obvious intrigue of the icicles widened by the lapping of the water as it rose and fell to different levels, hovering over the water’s surface.

  1. Beautiful detail of your river, I always think it is a pity the camera can’t capture the sound and the movement of water — I miss it when I see a picture like yours! And, I suppose, the cool air and the moisture on my skin.


    • Yes, sometimes I link to a video which gives a hint at the sound and at least captures the movement well, but there’s nothing like breathing the air for real. I suppose giving you a moment to at least remember that refreshing feeling is what Breathing Space is all about, so I’ll consider this one a success, even though it’s posted under the Sketchbook series. 🙂
