Viewing my Green Garden in Black andWhite for Green Thursday

Nature presents us with its artistic beauty in many ways. Sometimes people assume colour is the key to this artistry. Today I am looking at shape, contrast, lightness and darkness to view this beauty. Repetition is also an element to be consideredas is balanceof both positive and negative space space against, foreground and background.

My garden gives me much enjoyment as I wander around it looking for birds and butterflies which are also reaping the benefits offered by our inviting green environment.

B&W always gives such a different look, but still a beautiful one. I get so used to seeing in color, I have trouble adjusting. In quilting, it is a good way to judge the "value" of the fabrics you want to use, by viewing them in B&W. What seemed like a good selection of lights and darks suddenly seem to be all mediums.
