Autumn colours

Hi Everybody!

Hope you all had a good start in the new month.

For Art Journal Journey, inspired by autumn colours, I have a hybrid piece to show today. The background has been painted and then scanned. The nude is also one of my drawings, and the horse is a photo, which I changed to blue as I thought of Franz Marc. The armchair, birds and head are digital additions.



For Elisabeth's '2nd on the 2nd' I am re-showing a face made for autumn some years back. It was drawn with India ink, and coloured with  prismalos and a water pen. I am also linking to Kim Dellow's 'Show your face'




The horse's red coat makes a nice contrast to the trees.


A little visitor to the castle:


I love the red creeper:



The new railings are almost finished and some of the benches are back:


Sunset at the Rhine is always beautiful.


Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by

  3. EVerything about this post screams autumn, from the beautiful art you created for AJJ today to the lovely Second Look post to the beautiful photos. The horse in the field with the trees in the background is beautiful, and I was struck by how many leaves were around the bench at the Rhine.

    Thanks for sharing these beauties with us and thanks for your Second Look on the 2nd. Your lovely lady is truly a work of beauty and autumn warmth.

  9. I love every bit of this post! Your fall photos are so lovely. Most of the color is gone from here...now we have the bleakness of winter.

  10. Beautiful DREAMS piece you created (your nude is especially beautiful).
    I just woke up from visiting the UK in my dreams which was a fun night ;-)
    Your home by the Rhine is beautiful in every season.
    I can hardly believe it's November already!
    Here in the US we have a creeper vine called "Virginia Creeper".
    Lovely Autumn lady you created too.
    Happy Second Look.

    1. It's called the same in England, here it's called a wild vine. Your dreams sound like fun!

  11. Wow- your collage is fantastic. I think the blue horse does make it-gives a bit of a fantasy style while still being quite realistic. Does that sound weird? If so, ignore, I am down with a bad head cold. And I love your face drawing-it is perfect for right now isn't it? I always love how you manage to make faces with such cool and unusual hair. It never looks forced-always natural. Hope your Monday is going well.

  22. I've been gazing at your art wondering what is going on. The blue horse, the armchair - and then I saw the word "Dreams" so all is explained.
    The railings look very fine railings on my favourite virtual walk.
