The colours in nature seem to change very dramatically, when I got home from France, there had been an explosion of warm and fiery reds that dominated my local landscape; ie my local woods.
My palette changed completely from cold blue, mauve and purple magentas in France to the burnt siennas and trans. orange shades that I normally return to at this time in the.year. Autumn had proudly announced itself in my sketch book.
This painting highlighted the sunlight on ferns; hence, I have entitled this painting/sketch ; “Autumn ferns and roe deer”.
