ACEO - Autumn Trees 11

I pulled out this piece that I had started earlier this year (see post on 05 October 2015) while at the Knoepli Inn in Magnetawan.

I had set myself up in the farm house across the highway from the Inn and started working on a number of paintings of the wooded area beside the Inn'

I started by painting in the background trees with raw sienna and while that was drying I put in the dark green of the foreground vegetation.

With a mixture of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I put in the tree trunks of that were visible through the leaves.

Using mixtures of cadmium red and cadmium yellow I painted the bright coloured leaves into the foreground.

With the same colours plus new gamboge leaves were put onto the trees.
