Fairytale Hour

Fairytale time, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

As the season changes, the light shining down the hillside at the end of the day lifts my heart and makes it sing. I love this time of day. It's the time of day when my imagination can see the wood fairies peering around trees, springing off a blade of grass, making it bounce when all else remains still.

Magical light
The light sparkles through the leaves and the stalks of aged flowers, whose bloom is long past, suddenly turn silver as they dance across the meadow.

Leaf halos
The leaves of the oak play a little too, with fragile aura's of light defining each lobe.

light wc sketch
The light sends me racing for the sketchbook and watercolors, and I quickly attempt to capture the colors of green and light, of purple shadows and the glint of amber. I'm not there yet, but the journey is delightful!

Oh my gosh - I can just see the little fairies dancing in the grass. What cool pictures. Can't wait to see what you create from them!

That's a delightful little sketch. I've not got to grips with line and wash yet, but it produces great results for those that can.

Ahhhh.....this post makes me sigh and relax.

I wish I could relax into evening in this way. For me, that time of day is filled with dinner and homework and it's one of my least favorite times of day.

I look forward to trying to convert it to Lisa's fairytale hour....and then we'll all live happily ever after.

I know I have asked this before, but who knows where I wrote down the answer. What kind of camera are you using??? Your photos are spectacular.

Hi Lisa,
I just LOVE your photography and I can just see the fairies roaming there. I look forward to meeting you at the retreat.
