winter light there is a compensation for the shortness of days and the lessening of light in December. it’s the softness and warmth of the light around dusk which enfolds the countryside in a magical cocoon of pinkish glamour taking Bimba for a short second walk at this time of day especially in the green lane or Clip street where the outlook is over towards the sea the light and the sky always a reward. or on frosty mornings, when the light twinkles sequins in the leaves outlines sculptural shapes like jewellery and we stand and gawp at the magnificence. or we listen for geese https://janewheeler.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/decemberblog17_0327.m4v it’s been Brent geese this week, inland from their usual coastal marsh haunts for easier pickings on the winter wheat in the cold https://janewheeler.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/decemberblog17_0221.m4v and they did get a few days peace on this field https://janewheeler.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/IMG_0300.m4v until their presence was noted and a bird scarer installed – a huge bang with a big puff of smoke, and they were up and away … now the weather has warmed up so I hope they are back on the saltmarshes. one sunny but cold morning we explored parts of Bullfer grove I’d not bothered with before. a path around the far side was rather inviting amongst fallen leaves which the evening before had glowed copper still bright in daylight the low sun picks out the hedges and trees and bracken in a slow fire. this morning it’s much milder, and gloomier in the soft grey light. I have to think about three large paintings looking towards the coast at Cley, at Cley 18 for which I’ve been selected to make good my proposal ….. though I have a few more of these still life paintings to work on.
