A sure sign of autumn , the leaves are beginning to show their colours and there is a soft drizzle of rain falling.
This painting was executed with a limited palette. I tried to imagine a palette that I thought would mix softer fall colours and at the same time, wetter looking fall colours, for this particular painting.
I settled on English Red, Ultramarine Blue, Yellow Ochre and Titanium White.
The whole piece was painted from start to finish with this palette.
I really like this palette and it seems to meet all the requirements of an autumn painting under the circumstances it was to be painted.
No surprise colours this time.
