Autumn Stag Sumac...10" x 12".. O/P
Autumn seems to be 'hanging in there'. Plenty of leaves have yet to turn to their fall colours. This makes for , if the weather holds out, exciting painting. A glorious day today !
This painting follows the same pattern of the last painting in the sense that the same limited colours and plan of execution were adhered to. The bold red of the autumn sumac do seem strange in the landscape. I do not think that I have encountered it in such a way in any other landscape that I have painted out of the fall season. It certainly grabs the eye this time of year.
