Autumn Landscape

What can I say... it's the time of year when the leaves are changing and all I want to do is paint a palette of burnt orange, alizarin crimson, sap green and yellow ochre. This is my favorite color palette and I decided to work on paper using encaustic monotype techniques.

I continuously notice the leaves falling, their shapes and colors. The oak leaf below, grouped with the other leaf impressions, painted last week, makes for an interesting series. I plan on showing this work as part of my solo show next February at the North Shore Art league. I will probably have time to add more by then, too.

  1. Autumn colors are addictive, never tiring! Your oak steals any one's heart Robin!

  2. Ooohhhh! So gorgeous! I too love these colors.
    I'm sure February will get here fast. A solo show sounds glorious!!!

  3. I am lucky that in my neighborhood is a nature sanctuary and walking daily I can't help but notice all the different trees and foliage, padmaja. I love it.

    Even in February, I will find beauty in the monochromatic palette, Pamo! It feels good to be focusing on nature instead of skyscrapers.

  4. the red and gold leaves are beautiful !
