New Contemporary Autumn leaves
I love autumn. It’s my favourite season. Even down to the first few nights of needing the fire going. It gives such a cosy atmosphere to a house with our 3 cats curled up in their respective spots, nice and cosy.
And the leaves. Oh, the colours and shapes of the autumn leaves. I can’t get enough of them. And I’m learning that the trees are different each year. Last year it was the Smoke tree, but this year it’s the red maple that is simply divine. I’ve got so many of its leaves pressed in my books now. And this has led me to a new, more contemporary design with the leaves. Hence “Autumn’s Rainbows 2022”.
Capturing that beautiful Indigo blue that you get in the sky with the last of the light sometimes, and the silvery moon on a clear still night. These are the first 3 that have been finished, all 6” x 8”, with another 7 canvases in various stages of development.
I’m happy to say that the middle canvas (3 leaves) has already sold, with another one that I haven’t quite finished already sold as well.
