Autumn Leaves

I love painting trees - here I pushed the boundaries of the theme when I was inspired by a photo Brendan took of the reflections in the lake in Marlay Park.

I painted a dark smooth background first, then I had fun with a painting knife and lots of acrylics. I particularly enjoyed the texture of the Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic. I got a tube in PY3 (yellow-green) in Kennedys a few months ago, and I think I'll go back in the January sales for a few more colours!
