The Poetry Place

Landscape Painting

Thursday, 17 September 2015 16:25:01

While on holiday I did a lot of sitting and looking. I made some notes on the scene I was observing and started to try and create some feeling of the place. This is my beginning:

The surface so gently brushed

the nap raised

hardly yet perceptibly sensitive to the touch

a 1000  dots and dashes

never joined

never torn along the perforations
