I love a sunburnt country!

 

 

Finally completed and in the mail system, are my nine cards “Landscape in one colour” for the Round 11 swap of Postmark’dArt.

At this point, I need add that strictly speaking, my cards are not one colour, or shades of one colour;

but I always feel that one colour needsa contrast to keep it alive.

As my inspiration, I used the poem “My Country” by Dorothea Mackellar:

Particularly the verse

“I love a sunburnt country

A land of sweeping plains

Of ragged mountain ranges,

Of droughts and flooding plains

I love her far horizons

I love her jewel sea

Her beauty and her terror

The wide brown land for me”

Think of the reddish browns of the Hammersley Range in north western Australia, and this is what I have tried to emulate
