[Untitled] Thicket


The whole time I was painting this I was also groping for a title. No luck. The subject is a tangle of trees in late autumn.

The background seemed impressionistic until I enlarged the image to view on screen and could see so much better how you've made the conceptual thicket visual. The hints of yellow against purples-blues-pinks and the foreground are quite lovely. I like the quality of mysteriousness.

Exceptional, photography will never replace painting thanks to images like this.

Would it be too mundane to call it "Trees in Late Autumn"? Or "Late Autumn at a Nature Preserve"?

If Maureen hadn't pointed out that the enlargement showed more colors, I probably wouldn't have clicked on it, but yes, the larger version has very pleasing use of color.

Bravo.

A simple "Thicket" could suffice. I will have forgotten the title long before the image. It's divine.

Ooh, love this. Gentle lavender and green theme, with an unexpected red.

This is an amazing painting! Love the colors you've used. The whole painting just sings in harmony.

This one takes my breath away...so beautifully painted. A deepening glade, a hint of mystery, a surprise when you enlarge to see that background and how you've built a thicket there! WOW!

Love it, Randall. And would love to see the original to get the true sense of scale and presence.

You're on a major roll.
