Finally :: Finalement

Humans who spend time in the wilderness, alone, without man-made mechanical noise around them, often discover that their brain begins to recover its ability to discern things.
— Robert Anderson

As some of you know, I went out to paint it last Sunday and a squall of winter weather charged in and took all of the beautiful autumn colours and transformed them to soft pastels. What you did not know is that I went back today and painted it again, in its full glory… humph! Maybe that I was a tad overly enthusiastic with my colours, but here it is.

Paper: Arches 140 lbs CP
Colours: QGold, Burnt Sienna, Alizarin Crimson, French Ultramarine
