Ann Feldman posted a Fall Challenge on Daily Paintworks last week challenging artist to paint something pertaining to nature with a fall theme and using bright colors.
In this challenge I painted on a gessoed panel with a bright orange undertone and used Manganese Blue Hue for the background. Ann suggest turquoise for one of the colors so this is the brightest blue I could find in my studio. I hardly ever use this blue, made by Winsor & Newton but with this challenge I discovered a wonderful intense blue and plan to use it more often.
I really love this time of year! My studio is getting cluttered with acorns, leaves and other fall gatherings. Unfortunately this season goes way too quickly.
