Into the Woods 4

A3 alcohol ink on yupo paper


Van Gogh is quoted as saying "If you truly love nature you will find beauty everywhere".  


Autumn is my favourite season and I hope this series of paintings entitled "Into the Woods" capture my love of it.  It's a time of spectacular colour changes: bold and soft golds, greens, oranges and reds transform the colour palette of the outdoors, before dropping gently into rest.  This time of year fills the air with a feeling of change as leaves fall gracefully from the branches and come to setlle softly on the ground.  Trees start to reveal their superb architecture previoulsy hidden by foliage.  There is a magic as everything is changing.  A time not just of change but of letting go.


I have used a colour palette of citrus, vineyard, rosewood, currant, denim and slate in these original artworks of alcohol ink and yupo paper.
