The next season will be autumn. Already the nights are drawing in and the Persieds meteor showers are upon us, and the new term for school is just a few weeks away.
So I must paint some autumn pictures because I'm beginning to feel just a bit sad and nostalgic already for the summer's passing.

This is painted on canvas with lots of texture. I went heavy on the alkyd gel which has the added advantage of drying really quickly. There's more to add, possibly I'll sneak a dog in.
