November On Red Bud Isle

November On Red Bud Isle, 6 x 6

I revisited a subject from November when Laurel and I went out to Red Bud Isle to paint. The fall color was amazing for Austin, and when I saw the painting I'd done indoors, I laughed at how vibrant the colors were (it was a bright day). I toned them down in this one--hopefully a bit more reflective of what was there.

There is an exciting range of warm/cool and near/far contrast in this!

I love this, Julie. The variation in the intensity of color and value, and the fullness of the paint on the panel really give it depth. Really beautiful.

It's a great impression of a fall day. I love all the mixes of colors to be found in the trees.

Hi Julie,

This is beautiful, but I'm sure I would have like the not toned down one too!
