Oil on Board, 9 x 12 inches
Autumn can be a colourful time of year, but often the trees and grassbanks can look tired, with quite muted tones. However, if the winds haven't been too strong, and there is plenty of suger in the leaves and the sun shines, it can be a glorious sight.
This spot is just on the approach to Lyndon again, with an avenue of Oaks - always the last to hang on to their leaves. Along with the hedgerow greens and yellows, what a riotous patchwork of colour!
I loved the damp road surface, reflecting the warm orange of the Oaks down the lane. The greater majority of the painting was done with my big household decorators' paintbrush, save for the road and gate and network of branches.
this is the very last painting for my Beer exhibition, so now I can catch up with my other commitments and also do some new work for Peter Barker Fine Art, that fine, established mecca for fine art in Rutland!
