Woodland Stream, Late Autumn – Oil Painting

Woodland Stream, Late Autumn

The leaves are thinning out, and the light, although weaker, is penetrating into every nook and cranny. Its clear and cold.

I’m still using the same three colours as in the recent paintings, namely, Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Yellow and Prussian Blue. I have also abandoned the use of added medium, as in Linseed Oil or Liquin. I am surprising myself at how much can be coaxed out of such limited materials. Also, how different the overall colour of the different paintings can be, using the same three colours. For example, October (here), Golden Pond (here) and the above painting are all from the above mentioned colours.

This painting process is recorded on video along with the action on the palette. I will post this in a few days. See you then.
