Rustic Barn Autumn Painting from modest beginnings emerges a gold-toned fall scene

The finished fine art painting with gold paint embellishments, ready to hang, approximately 18 x 30 inches. A stunning piece representing all that is colorful and beautiful about fall! Buy here at
Here, we see the fall colors emerging with tones of burnt umber, orange, brown, forest green. I used a spray bottle and then a water color technique on the burlap. The paints soaked in lightly creating a muted affect.

Here, I wanted to create an untamed and unruly grass foreground.

In the beginning there was a palette knife and some grey and white paint. I sketched in some of the background, but that usually changes as the painting moves along.
