                 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.
