A Rainy Walk in Autumn. A walk I took often enough, on a windy dark road, I was always pretty nervous even walking with others. I decided to paint my autumn piece in cloudy skies which is not my norm. I usually create a piece with lots of light from the sun and bright colored leaves. This year, I decided to take a different path, Hungry Hollow Road is gray, wet and chilly.
I started with laying down the perspective of where the road would vanish, trees lines, and then added the details. Tree branches and trunks, leaves on the branches and fallen leaves on the sides of the road. I wanted the leaves to be a bit darker and look wet. But I did decide that the Maple leaves should be bright, as they are in life, wet or dry. The reflections on the road came next as did the wet pavement. I then added the road in the background to show it vanishing into the rain and mist. I leave it to the viewer as to where Hungry Hollow Road will take you.
Thanks for checking in with me this week! I have been painting many canvases these past few weeks.
Stop by next week for Horizon Road!
This piece, Purple Sunset, is done in Oil Pastels on board. I started with blocks of color and blended them in. I then added the water, horizon and landscape. I wanted a brilliant sunset over water, but not necessarily an ocean. This land and water look like a marsh perhaps? I still do not know where this place is, but I have been told the sky reminds them of the southwest! So, I will let your imagination take over and it can be wherever you decide!
Back to the studio for an Abstract Art challenge, Raindrops and Reflections. Reflections on a wet and rainy street. There’s movement and softness to this piece. This piece is Oil Pastels on canvas.You can see the droplets of rain form circular ripples on the street surface. Reflections of stop lights, lamp posts and part of the blue,gray rainy sky. Can you see the double yellow line on the street?
This Abstract was so much fun to paint! I let my imagination take me on a walk in the rain down a street. I watched how the rain fell, circled, curled and puddled. I saw the reflections from everything on top of the road change color and blur. It was beautiful!
