Description of Autumn colours on Shennongjia mountain

The vivid autumn colours in a patch of trees on the Shennongjia mountain in Hubei Province, China, are painted in bright oranges, reds and yellows in this acrylic painting. The quick dashes of colourful paint mirror the transitory brilliance of autumn leaves. The slim trees trunks are a light taupe where they catch the sun, fading into a deep purplish brown in the shadows. The steep slope of the hill flows down into the greenery, culminating in a red orange leaved bush, which contrasts against the deep cool hills beyond. The clear blue of the sky serves as a counterpoint to the intense motion and colour in the body of the painting.

The painting is a gallery wrapped 1½” deep edge canvas, with the sides re-gessoed a clean white. It is wired and ready to hang. No frame is necessary unless desired.
