Amber Shade – Oil Painting

Amber Shade

The season of autumn is upon us. In the woods the change is most obvious. The bright sparkling light filtered through the amber leaves was the inspiration for this painting. Although in shade, there are few deep shadows.

I’m trying my ‘watercolour’ method on this woodland scene. As in the previous paintings (here and here) there is no medium used, only White Spirits. I’ve described the method in recent posts. Here, the materials are simpler than before. Three colours and three brushes. Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre and Cerulean Blue are the colours used.

I will post the video of the painting process in the next few days.
