forest edge

watercolor sketch of the forest edge

This sketch of a forest edge, with a glimpse of a river through the trees, inspired a transom window. The arched top triptych was installed above the front entry door. Even though the sketch is pretty small, the panel ends are quite narrow – the ends of the arch are even narrower at only 3 1/2” and the arch grows to just over 15” at the peak. This creates a bit of a dilemma in working out the composition. Trying to keep the flow across the panels without making the edges feel pinched is a challenge. Luckily the confetti and streamer glass is perfect for creating depth and detail without being busy.Forest Egde triptych
