Dyeing a river 5/11/14

Dyeing a river

These are both satins, one in pale blue the other silver-grey. I have dyed both as potential backgrounds for the floating maple leaves. There is the suggestion of leaves below the surface which will become far more obvious when other leaves are added in collage.

Maple leaves 3rd November 2014

this is the dye-work for Maple leaves

My plan is to try to convey maple leaves floating both beneath and on the surface of the river. This is the dye-work for the leaves themselves.

Autumn Floatig By

Maple leaves fall from my tree and float by in the river.

The variety of leaf colour on one maple tree can be extraordinary. Autumn breezes have been blowing them from my tree and I have watched the leaves float by, as you can see on this one minute video.

Sennen Sea Dogs

An autumn Sunday brings people and their dogs to the edge of the sea. Tall, short, old and young, all put a paw in the water and some glory in the surf.
