A new beginning

I love the first few days of working on a new piece!  It’s all still exciting and new, the possibilities are endless, and I probably haven’t screwed anything up yet.  Probably.

This time I’m working on an autumn landscape.  I could very easily get in a rut, doing almost nothing else.  I love autumn – always have.  I love the color combinations.  I love the smells.  I love the golden light.  I love the chill and a good scotch by a campfire.

The inspiration for this one is those days when the sky is a grey/blue and mist hangs among the trees.  I love the contrast of the cool sky and mist with the vibrant leaves and dark, wet tree trunks.  Here’s the start of it:

I know, it’s not much to look at yet.  I put together an inspiration board on Pinterest if you’d care to look at it HERE.  I got a little carried away and posted a lot that doesn’t apply to this piece, but it’s all autumn and gorgeous Smile

And for those that don’t do Pinterest, here’s a few special ones…
