Shades of Autumn

This is a painting I seem to work on once a year (see posts on 11 December 2010, 13 January 2011 and 12 February 2012), but it is going to get finished today.

I wanted to give a little more definition to the top of the rocks so I darkened a couple of the lighter coloured trees and added a smaller tree.

Next I added some darker coloured pine trees into the bottom of the painting.

Then I added some brightly coloured leaves onto the deciduous trees using cadmium red and cadmium yellow throughout the painting.

Lastly I added some definition on the rocks with burnt sienna and French ultramarine blue.

When framed, this original 6" x 8-3/4” watercolour painting will be available for $150.00.
