Late September

Oil on Board, 10x14 inches

Okay, how many of you are singing "It's late September and I really should be back at school"?  Is it just me, or did you also immediately think of Maggie May and The Faces with Rod Stewart growling out the lyrics?  Just me eh, oh well, please yourselves.

This one is another painting I'd put aside a while back; it was actually one I did as a demo for an Art Group last year and tweaked a bit today.  The more astute of you will have noticed it's the same view as 'Clear August Air' posted yesterday.  It's a month or so later, the vegetation has died off a bit, and the trees are on the turn, their green colour being replaced with a more yellowy, warmer hue.  You will also see that the atmosphere in this one is totally different - a much more hazy sunlight, with more milky tones as the trees redede into the distance.

If you've spotted both the different atmosphere and the same view AND sangalongaRod, go to the top of the class and adopt a slightly smug look on your face.......
