This January postcard - which now lives in France with Ronelle van Wyk (Africantapestry and Myfrenchkitchen). I loved what she says about it in Willow Reflections.
I especially love the darkness of the reflections breaking up into softer tones and hues and more highlights and finally disappear into the lefthand corner, adding such lovely diagonal movement. I feel as if I'm slowly passing in a canoe, dragging my hand through the ripples and reflections.These willows are in an area where the canal boats turn round and hence there's a bit more water than usual. The colours in January in the sun are also very interesting - if you look hard!
