Autumn Light

Oil on board, 10 x 14 inches  SOLD

This one is obviously a studio painting.  In fact it started out as a demo painting to an art group last year and I've finally got round to finishing it off.

Autumn by the River Nene backwater on a gorgeous, bright October morning, with a lone Swan dabbling in the reeds; it's really my sort of painting material.  Subtle warm tones are added throughout as the brash Summer greens are replaced by the yellowy russets of the reeds and trees.

I'm back painting furiously now, with gallery commitments demanding 20 odd new paintings by the end of February, gulp, so stand by for lots more irritating emails coming your way in the next few weeks!

You may have noticed, if you've been paying attention, that my blog has a new look for the new year too.  I've been tinkering with background colours just to keep you on your toes....


  1. Lovely tree! I find trees hard to paint, but you manage to do it well in all your paintings. I liked the story about the painting that came off the car roof too, and the rescued bird!
    Cheers, Fay

    1. Thank you Fay! Just keep practising those trees and paint what you see!

  2. Three lovely paintings Peter. Good job your fingers are now in good working order. I think you could write a book about your mishaps and adventures. Ve

    1. Ha ha, thank you Ve! I'm really enjoying being back on the easel again.
