30" x 30"
Oil on canvas

One of my goals for September is painting things I fear.  The other thing I wanted to do on the same vane is use photographs that I like but I didn't know how to paint them or maybe they were too difficult of a scene.  In honor of starting my 30 day challenge I used this photo.  I love the photo with a lot of beautiful leaves in the background and a beautiful branch of red leaves in the front.  I decided to take a chance and paint all the colors that I saw in the background and leave out the branch going across the foreground.  This was completely done with a palette know so the colors wouldn't get muddy with applying so much paint.
