Early Autumn, Distant Mist

£320

In the first few weeks of October, the green bracken begins to die back and turns a deep russet brown colour which just begs to be painted. I got up early one morning before the early mist had time to burn off and saw this view open up in front of me; I had only just enough time to sketch out the details before the mist disappeared, blown away by the breeze. In the painting I tried to avoid overworking the paint, leaving it fresh and bold, with some details not fully resolved – leaving the viewer’s imagination to fill in the gaps.
