Autumn Scrub 10" x 12" O/P
The lush panoramas of the countryside colours are pretty well gone. What is left in my part of the world are the scrubby shallow earthed areas. These areas are where plants and trees with shallow roots tend to grow among exposed flat limestone surfaces. In many areas, the vegetation still holds its colour.
This particular painting was painted on a prestained (pinkie orange) Masonite panel using my limited palette. I will admit to having a "Viridian green" on my palette which I used in some mixes.
The brushes used where mostly a number 4 flat bristle brush and a 'rigger' brush.
The colours may appear quite rich for this time of year and area. If this is a fault, then it is mine. Personally, I sort of dislike a "wimpy" colour. :~)
Another painting that has had a second thought. Although I feel that the colours have remained strong in the repaint, I also feel that the values have been changed and improved, making the painting easier to 'read'.
There is more definition between the foreground, middle and background. Hope that you agree.
