It seems like a strange autumn to me this year. The colours appear to be in "patches" or so they seem to me. It means more scouting around the countryside and perhaps settling for less as far as subject matter goes. Some of the trees have lost their leaves while others are just beginning to turn. Perhaps this is a good sign and the season will last a little longer.
This piece was painted on a Masonite panel that was prepared with three coats of gesso and one coat of acrylic red-orange applied to the surface.
My palette for this painting was Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Cerulean Blue, Alizarin, Bright Red, Cadmium Yellow Med., Veridian, Raw Sienna and White. Not quite my usual limited palette. I used little or no medium in my paints for this piece.
I think that the absence of the cooler Lemon Yellow, helps to keep a warmer feeling to the finished piece.
A fun day, a fun painting.
