Autumn Splendour - A Work in Progress

There is nothing like hiking along a new trail through the forest on a crisp autumn day and coming across something unexpected. In this case the path led to a small waterfall and brook coursing its way down the steep hill.

I stopped and made a quick sketch and took a number of reference photographs before continuing on the trail which eventually turned away from the brook and led back to our original starting point.

Later that day when I returned home I put in the under painting of the scene while it was still fresh in my memory.

I will post this painting at a later date once more if it has been completed.
