A Winter's Tale....

It seems to be getting so dark so quickly in London at the monent! I really feel that not just autumn, but winter too is setting in really quickly.

It's a cold, sunny, crisp day and for some reason I got to thinking about one of my favourite artists, Ben Nicholson. I love his pale, muted colours and his technique of layering complentary colours on top of each other then a really simple line drawing of some everyday object like a cup or a bottle. I also particularly love his tree landscapes which really capture the feeling of a wintery frost in the countryside.
Here is a little montage of some of my favourites!
