A color study of autumn colors

Last sunday I made this little colored painting with the technique wet on wet (or “alla prima”).

The subject is a basket full of red and yellow apples. It is taken after a photo I made a couple of years ago, exactly in an autumn day like these ones.

Autumn inspires me always very much. Autumn colors, autumn lights, autumn fruits and flowers. For this reason it happens often I make some still lifes in this period of the year.

This was a very small and quick one. Some kind of simple “color study”, as I didn’t want to spend too much time on it, I gave myself only one day so I decided to concentrate particularly on colors. My main goal was to paint the warm autumn colors and autumn lights.

I enjoyed very much painting this subject and I could enjoy more only by painting the same subject from life..

Next time for sure!
