Anyway, I started a piece and will see if I can push it to completion. This is another view of the lane near my house that leads into a marsh. The lane is flooded and the iron in the soil is apparent in the orange/rust colours. I love the changing colours in both the water and trees during the seasons in this view and often do studies of it. The colours in this lane always remind me of autumn even in summer. The greens aren't usually lush there, being pines, larch and alders and the rusty soil adds to the overall feel.
This piece is about 16 x 20 and I'm laying in colours and values roughly before I start defining it more.
