Autumn Carpet, Fine Art Print by Laurel Moore
Size: 29cm width by 42cm height
Autumn in the Neuchatel woods in Switzerland was a spectacular sight. The colours of fall lay like a carpet of reds over the forest trails. They were secret, hushed and silent places and sometimes when walking my dog Axel, I felt like I was the only person in the whole world. I loved that feeling of being a part of nature and part of the seasons. In the original oil painting I wanted to capture the texture of the autumn leaves and the intensity and variety of colours. The rain fell so heavily in autumn and all the air was damp and wet and I wanted to capture that heavy atmosphere in my painting.
