Last Blush, November 1

Acrylic collage painting on archival paper. I tend NOT to do much with fall colours....things can get overblown....the 'bones' of the lands interest me more....but every so often a reference to autumn colour creeps in. Here I may be nostalgic that the foliage is now almost all gone from the trees....a few more days of warm weather this week, and then we might be in to winter.

Very often, in the initial planning stages, a picture gets decided based on the relationship of 2-3 colours, in this case, the grey sky, yellow foreground, and the orange center. I did almost nothing to the grey sky after the piece was collaged in.
