Autumn's Muddle Oil sketch on board 6 x 6 inches SOLD
The fresh green grass and wild flowers along the river banks are replaced with a jumble of dried grasses and seed heads, berries and rosehips. The colours glow in the sunlight and there is a relaxed feeling all around. The lone fence post stands proudly like a sentry to mark the overgrown track.
Loosely painted, this sketch is an impression of the place without too much fine detail. I wanted to create a sense of disarray as nature settles down at the end of summer.
The palette is soft and muted. No longer the bright summer hues. A gentle day.
