Autumn

The hazy heat of summer is behind us, giving way to shorter days and cooler nights. One of the consolations of the arrival of fall is the change in the colour of the leaves , which adds new tones of red, yellow and orange to the fresh greens of the landscape. Here are two autumnal landscapes, painted in the hazy days of my youth.

Here’s a gutsy little effort from early days, done in drippy enamel paints (I would have to lay the pictures flat to stop the colours from sliding down the panels). I like the bold brushstrokes and the way our little house struggles up through the squiggly vegetation.

Here the leaves have mostly blown away, while the late afternoon sky talks of colder days to come.


Wishing you colourful vistas,

Barry
