Oil on Board, 9x12 inches
This is a painting I did en plein air last November and had shelved it (literally) to tweak a little in the studio.
Having dug it out, I finished it off this morning and have submitted it for the ROI Annual Exhibition.
This wonderful avenue of Oaks is always glorious in November, when the leaves finally turn to russet and gold. With the sun slightly to my right and in front, the distant hill was thrown into relief with the most beautiful blue haze colour, contrasting with the rich complimentary oranges of the sunlit foliage.
I actually painted a larger, similar view, looking from much further back up the hill, as a demonstration piece for the Mickleover Art Group yesterday - to be finished and posted here soon...
