I just finished this painting a few minutes ago. I used a photo as a reference for this. My usual style is high key, colorful painting. My goal in this particular piece was to loosen up a bit, and paint somewhat more softly. I love how the violets and blues in the mists contrast with the golds, yellows, and reds in this.
My palette consisted of zinc/titanium white, cadmium lemon, cadmium yellow deep, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, purple lake, indigo, and terre verte, and burnt umber. (I don’t care much for terre verte, but I wanted to use it up). I mixed indigo with burnt umber to make my dark.
Fall is my favorite time of year. We had an especially spectacular one this year here in Missouri. It was extended due to warmer than usual weather.
