A raw wind was blowing during the painting of this piece. It was a constant reminder that Autumn was in the air. Even a small panel such as this had to be frantically grabbed from time to time and saved from the chilly gusts of wind. The details and 'trim' lines of the cottage were next to impossible to lay down.
Although it was sunny, let's hope that a fewer warmer days still lay ahead.
The palette for this painting was my usual limited palette, with the addition of Yellow Ochre and Raw Sienna.
My medium was odourless mineral spirits, ..if and when used at all.
Brushes were a number six, number seven and a "rigger' ( lline work, twigs, etc.)
My hope is that this is just the first of many autumn painting. It is an inspiring time to paint.
