September Tree Colour Studies


With September's new moon I did colour studies of  the same 4 trees I have been studying for over a year.
The red arbutus bark is peeling again to show a bright green under layer.

The cedar continues to produces a mid-yellow green ...

...and the Douglas-fir a deeper yellow green.

The withdrawal of chlorophyll is happening more rapidly in the maple tree this month.
Now I need to find these colours in thread and stitch a band of running stitch on each tree cloth.
The work is due to be exhibited again, this time in the Oakville town hall during the World of Threads.
It will look different with 4 more bands of colour added to each sheet.
