"An Autumn Trail" 9x12 o/p
Finally, the fall colours are beginning to happen. It is an exciting time to be painting out side, absorbing the sites, sounds and smells of autumn. It is an all to short, beautiful season.
In this autumn painting, I have deviated from my usual method. Rather than using the limited palette, I have opted for a 'split' palette.
The colours on this palette are, Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine blue, Alizarin, Bright Red. My yellow of choice is Cadmium Yellow Medium and Lemon Yellow is the cool colour ( a warm and cool of each primary colour) As well, I added Sap Green, Veridian, Raw Sienna and Yellow Ochre as my helpers.
My panel for this painting was finished with a coat of light purple acrylic. This colour may be seen showing through in some areas of the finished work. I think it works well as a complimentary to the oranges, yellows and red mixtures.
Now, to get back out there.
'til next, take care..
