Goose green, Yate, 22" x 15".
A local spot a few hundred metres from where I live. I've done a few paintings of this location, from different angles and seasons. This time it's early autumn, and in the foreground, some purple leaved maples have dropped their leaves. The dark tree on the right was done with a sword brush, loaded with plenty of dark paint (neutral tint mainly). Just dabbing the paper with the point of a brush like that gives some fairly nice leaf effects.
