Farmhouse in Autumn

This is another picture that I found half finished in amoung my artwork. I think I started it about 8 or 9 years ago and tired of it so put it to the side and forgot about it.


It is painted on Canson paper using soft pastels, hard pastels and pastel paintings.

It measurers approx. 30 cm x 30 cm.

I just liked this scene. I wanted to convey to the viewer a summer's day but I don't know if I've achieved this. I've used a bluey/grey ground and think I should have used a brighter one but it is done now so maybe next time!!!

The perspective of the house was challenging as was the shadows cast on the roofs by the building.

I think it has turned out not too badly but I'm not thrilled with it.

I really like this one. It feels so soft and yet detailed at the same time. The colors complement each other well and the "glow" of the whole painting is very pleasant.

Correction
by: Dorothy Carluke

Apologies to all I've just read my own blurb about this painting and I've got myself mixed up.

I meant to call this painting Summer Farmhouse and I used pastel pencils - not paintings to paint it.

This confusion is due to a "senior moment"!!

Regards,

Dorothy
