Autumn Afternoon by kaelby Autumn Afternoon by kaelby
Oil Painting on canvas finished Jan 2011. Took about 15 hours to complete.

The pic is a lot darker than the actual painting, and more like I intended I guess. Think I overdid the atmospheric perspective so that it looks like ground fog in the distance whereas this wasn't my intention. Live and learn! At least hopefully its an improvement from the last one.

Very nice, your atmosphere is painted quite well, and I enjoy the look down the road...

thank you for the nice comment, I should be getting back to painting within a few days so hope to produce something with all the things I learnt doing this piece :)

Very beautiful. I love the way you have painted the leaves and branches, the way they twist and turn against the light, it makes them seem very alive.
The light and dark contrasts in the fallen leaves in the foreground bring it foward really well. When I'm painting I often play up these foreground contrasts to the extreme to create more impact. I love what you've done.
