Autumn Happening In Cottage Country 11" x 14" O/P
Fall colours are beginning to appear in cottage land. It appeared for awhile, the best we could hope for was just a visual sea of 'dirty yellow'. It is encouraging to see some bright oranges and reds in the landscape the last few days. I am sure there is a competition as the green leaves refuse give in to the colour change. The new colours are exciting to see and the erg to paint is strong.
This piece was painted on a white gessoed panel without a colour wash or stain. I used my usual limited palette and odourless mineral spirits was my medium.
There will be many more chances to paint this short colourful season if the fall rain holds off.
..Crossing our fingers for good luck.
