Oregon’s January Palette

"Oregon's Winter Palette", watercolor and colored pencil by Kerry McFall

Clearly, we’re not in Botswana any more… or Tennessee, or Brooklyn.  Sigh.

But it’s beautiful here in a cold, foggy kind of way.  This afternoon I walked the Bald Hill Farm trail as part of my “re-entry” therapy – the Oregon Winter palette is very simple:  grey, pale lichen green, more grey, nut brown, dead grass green, and thank goodness for the red of wild rosehips.

I hope to find time to post the last few Botswana sketches soon, but I’ll be back to work tomorrow so it may be a few days before I get everything sorted out.
