Autumn Fields--Original Miniature Landscape Oil Painting

Autumn is definitely here. Yesterday there was a wind storm that downed trees, limbs, and leaves. This morning I was able to sneak out and take a bike ride between rain showers. Color is on the trees and in the fields. Today's painting is a 5x7 inch oil painting inspired by the colors of fall. The distant trees were painted with a couple of my favorite colors--Gamblin's Transparent Earth Red and Transparent Earth Orange. The red is especially rich. Closeups and purchase information are available in my Etsy Gallery.

Wow, that is beautiful. The colors are great :) I've tried oil painting and I just COULDNT do it. It's far too tedious for me. Kudos to you on the brilliant work!

Oooo you posted the link to this picture in a promotions post I'd made earlier and I absolutely love it ... my 15 year old daughter and I love to paint and I know she'd love this painting (she's much better than I am)
