Always enjoyed painting the colours of autumn. Definitely my favourite season to be out of doors. I wanted to capture the crispness and the warmth of a lazy fall day down at the creek.
I love the way the rider's blue shirt plays off of the warm tones in the background. Both the horse and the rider's pose suggest nothing more than a quiet moment in the sun. The rider's gaze off to his right might suggest a noise off in the distance or perhaps it just a thought floating by.
I enjoyed painting the water and the ripples. The few blue strokes really add to the feel and tie the image together.
