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.

  1. Hello from Canada Liam, I have just nominated you for the Inspiring Blog Award, and the Lovely Blog Award. Maybe you have these already but…I’m not sure how the award part works, but you can choose to join the fun by giving a link to my page:
    Then stating 7 facts about yourself and nominating 15 other bloggers. This is of course entirely voluntary. You can read my post here

    • Thank you Graham. I’m honoured by your nomination. I have been nominated in the past and despite my best efforts, time, or lack of it, has prohibited me from fulfilling the requirements of acceptance. Getting the posts together is so time consuming I rarely have time to enjoy the posts of my fellow bloggers. So in a way I am always ‘out of touch’ with whats happening. I will accept the nomination as an award in itself, and thank you again for thinking of me.
