The Orange Reflection

There was a strange reflection that caught my eye recently while Husb and I were walking on the beach. The full moon was bright silvery white but its reflection on the calm high tide was orange. I used my little Khadi sketchbook, handmade paper with a very rough texture. I had pre-coloured it with an Indian ink wash and I drew onto it with Daler Rowney artists’ soft pastels. The very rough texture of the paper gives a strong speckled effect.

    Absolutely gorgeous Rosie! Excellent use of texture here, I love what you said about the speckles on the water, that looks perfect 🙂

    Nothing like direct observation! Magical, isn’t it?

      Thank you. I like the way it developed from something real into something abstracted.
