Misty Forest

I almost never use purple, but this time I dug way into the back of my paint drawer and used some layers of purple in the sky for this painting. I love the rusty red leaf litter and how the purple takes on a cold aspect against the warm reds of the ground. This is a very unusual color combination for me, but I like it so far. Forests don't have to be green.

Love it! This one reminds me of fall at my favorite camping spot...I'm heading there in 2 weeks for the final trip of the season--your painting makes me excited for it!
