Branford Park is turning now, but it will be a couple of weeks at least before it reaches it's full autumn glory.
I love the autumn colours. It allows me to put all the cadmiums on my palette.
As you probably are aware I'm a great believer in limiting myself to three primaries for most of my work, but autumn is different. Autumn is special. Touches of pure pigment straight from the tube. Yum!
I will write some time soon about the joy of paint, and the seduction of colour.
For now I will only mention in passing that today when I was painting the glorious flower beds in the Queens Gardens I really really missed my dioxidine purple. I haven't thought about that colour for nearly a year. Last autumn actually.
So there you are. We will meet in the Rose Garden on Sunday, 2pm, and look for the last of this summer's blooms...
