Different Palette

Autumn Splendour, 36"x36", acrylic

I find that I get very comfortable with my usual colour palette. I can readily reach for safe mixes that will do the job. With this one I wanted to try something different. It was great fun to play with the beautiful warm colours. I ended up glazing over the upper part of the hillside with white to create more atmosperic perspective and to cool it down. I think that sometimes I get caught up in the result and I don't take time to enjoy just putting the paint on the canvas, and playing a little. I just took this piece out to the Birthplace of BC gallery in Fort Langley. I will be out there on Aug 1 and 2 (Sun and Mon) painting in the gardens with other gallery artists.


  1. I love the colors in this one. Absolutely beautiful.

  2. Thanks Becky, It really was fun to mix it up and use these colours.


Please leave a comment I appreciate the feedback.
