‘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.
Bold colour is painted using acrylic paint and leaves that I found in my garden. It measures 50cm by 50cm on a thin edged canvas.
