A Wet, Chilly Autumn Day

Autumn Barn Yard   10" x 12"    O/P

 This scene is a bit of an exaggeration in that the scene is real, but the timing is wrong. Today, the weather in this scene is of a typical early fall, end of summer kind of day. I just could not wait for the greens to just disappear ! As the painting developed, my imagination sort of took over and I ended up with a cool, damp, typical late fall day.

I used a limited palette for this painting. Prussian blue, cerulean blue, cad yellow med., yellow ocher, alizarin,  cad. red med. and titanium white.
My medium was orange scented thinner.

I was pleasantly pleased with the result of my efforts.
