I do not seek inspiration or wait around hoping it will find me.
Sometimes it just shows up, performing an aerial glomp.

ACEO: Autumn Tree: Painted September 14, 2010

ACEO: Autumn Tree
Originally uploaded by diannna-art
Acrylic paint on 2 1/2" x 3 1/2",
246# Strathmore Acid Free acrylic paper.
The leaves on the trees around here are still green, but the past few comfortably chilly nights have made me anticipate the coming change of seasons.

The sky is mostly Titanium White and just a hint of Primary Blue. I wanted the blue to look almost washed out, making the sky be a foreshadowing of Winter. Burnt Umber forms the tree branches. The leaves are made of Primary Red and Primary Yellow dancing over a thin amount of Phthalocyanine Green. All three colors are used on the ground to form grass and fallen leaves.
