Country Home In Early Autumn 9" x 12" O/P
The fall colours are really beginning to take a grip on the northern countryside. I seems to me that the colours began slowly and if memory serves me right, the fall colours were beginning to appear as early as September in the swampier areas. With the colours the way they are today, I find it all so refreshing .
My palette for this painting was a limited palette. The colours were a mixture of ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, alizarin, cadmium yellow, cadmium lemon yellow, yellow ocher, and titanium white.
And I will admit to a yellow green being on my palette as well.
The use of these "autumn" colours was a welcome change to the "summer greens".
