The Colours of Autumn
This painting is loosely based on a previously posted image. It was largely painted with a 12 inch wide drywall tool and finished up with progressively smaller tools. I had great fun with it and I'm looking forward to doing more with this type of paint application. Currently I'm looking for a supplier of Oil paint that can sell me quantities in quart and gallon sizes as this technique can really burn up the paint! The German painter Gerhard Richter had a hand in this, my hat is off to him.
