‘Colours of autumn’ are three new abstract paintings that seek to capture the decrease in green and increase in orange, red and golds.
I stood and observed the light and colours. I stood in awe. At times spontaneous laughter erupted as I delighted in the looking at the colours of the leaves and basked in the sharp crisp light of an autumnal day.
And then in an act of worship I spent an afternoon painting out the first layers of abstract paintings and experimented in new ways of applying paint. I built up over time layers of paint that speak of light breaking in and rich dark bold autumnal colours.
Forms of leaves can be seen in the paintings.
Three 🍁 leaves 🍁 is painted using acrylic paint and leaves that I found in my garden. It measures 50cm by 50cm on a thin edged canvas.
