Still on the subject of Autumn, this painting is an imaginary scene with the feeling of summer’s end and the golden glow of September.
The colours were: Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna and Cobalt Blue. Other colours: Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow and Cerulean Blue. Extra colours: Burnt Umber, Chrome Green Light and Raw Umber. Also, black and white. I think in terms of red, yellow and blue. These and their mixtures represent the spectrum of colours found in nature. The colours above also mix well together in the groups indicated which could be considered as the ‘craft’ part of oil painting.
Very little medium was used in the initial stages of the painting, with Liquin used to paint the details using the ‘rigger’ brush. I also used nylon brushes for details which have a less pronounced ‘bristle’ effect.
