The Autumn colours have been ablaze for the last while and will be so for the next couple of weeks. Painting weather outside has not been the best what with the on again off again rains.
It seems to be the typical fall weather that leaves the outside painter "itching"to go, weather or not !
The above painting was painted on a gessoed panel that was stained an orange-red. This base stain may be seen in some areas between the 'strokes'.
My usual limited palette was used for this painting plus a yellow- green tube colour was added near the end of the painting while doing the final details.
A 'rigger' brush and a number six bristle brush was used during the painting. The rigger, for the finer details and for drawing in the initial layout.
Let's hope that the sunnier weather is yet to come.. :~)
