Fall Color One

We really had a colorless fall this year, but I stumbled on a tree lined drive that had spectacular color.  I wish I could tell you what kind of trees these are, possibly some kind of crabapple.  At any rate they were actually this bright at sunset.  I am pretty happy with this painting.  After taking Carol Marine's workshop I have been practicing mixing greys and using them more often.  I think it paid off in this one. 
More to come in this series.   I think I  can learn quite a bit from this subject and the colors are fun to mix.  


  1. First... I LOVE the painting under your blog title! Also I agree that the Fall Colors would be great in a series. You'll probably be surprised what it 'grows' into! ;)

    I think your blog looks great, and I will definitely be checking back. Now.... want to trade links? I'm going to go ahead and put your link on my blog, I don't think you'll object!

  2. Hi Diane, I love your blog! What a great job! Congratulations! Your encaustics are beautiful. The one with your blog title is so rich. The colors are so lush! Thank you for including me in your blog list! I want to put your blog on my blog list. I also don't think that you will oject! Keep up the great work!!
