Autumn and beyond

My daughter Olivia, 2hr quick paint sketch, Acrylic on canvas
We are now into Autumn and I am still ploughing through #paintseptember I have learnt so much already from it and this has been a good base for the start of the larger paintings I am going to start on ready for next year. 

I am not going to worry too much about a theme at this stage because sometimes that just puts too much pressure on my way of thinking. I will just take in what comes and see what happens. Spontaneity has been the key of late and I am going to continue on that path for a while.

The painting on the left is of my daughter Olivia. This was a 2 hour speed painting which I used as an exercise for playing with tone. I chose just two colours for this so that I could experiment with warm and cool colours.
