"Fall Palette" oil landscape, Arboretum series

Next in the Arboretum series. The challenge was painting the glow of the leaves in the indirect , suffused light of an overcast, Northwest day. I had to dial down the background values enough so that the application of the cad. red and yellow leaves would pop. Sold

I agree with the previous comment. You have achieved a very difficult goal: getting the luminosous translucence of the leaves in that light. Congratulations.

And the leaves did "Pop" Robin. The colors and effect of this piece are great. And the Mountlake Cut oil is simply outstanding! Have a joyous Christmas and drop by for some holiday cheer.
