Autumn Rain - Abstract Painting + Timelapse Video

It feels and looks like fall is in full swing here in North Carolina this week. The beauty of the bright colors I see in the woods around my home, bursts of red, orange and in counterpoint to the muted browns and umber-greens.

In my latest abstract, I tried to capture the essence of the season through the color palette and abstract composition. I view this work as a woods scene, distorted and obfuscated as if seen through a rain-streaked window. To achieve the rainy effect, I used two techniques: splashing water from my dirty water cup at the top of the canvas, allowing it to drip through the paint causing streaks, and a gentle vertical brushing with a clean dry brush to blend together the individual color swaths.
