This abstract painting was created as part of the Autumn series project I have been working on since Autumn 2014. The painting was created deliberately from memory and shortly after my observations of a wooded area near home. I wanted to capture the feeling of my experience, focussing on the light and stillness that is often strong in Autumn. I have attempted to express gentle leaf fall on water, fire smoke and the dry/damp conditions and aroma.
The painting is varnished with a high quality satin oil paint varnish that will help protect the painting from dust, grease and UV damage.
The oil paints are a high quality pigment and I always use Premium Wide depth 10oz Stretched Cotton Canvas. I use a greener alternative to traditional turpentine and white spirit.
