October--Original Landscape Oil Painting

This is a 24x30 inch oil painting that I recently finished. It is based on a smaller 5x7 inch study I painted a few weeks ago. Translating a successful small painting to a larger scale doesn't always work well, but I'm fairly pleased with this attempt. I liked the sparkle of the autumn leaves, the texture of the grassland in the foreground, and the contrast of the blue and orange palette. The small 5x7 inch version of this painting is available for sale at my Etsy Gallery and can be purchased here.
