I think the autumn colors look their best with grey skies in the background! Lovely job!
Agreeing that grey enhances the painting! :) This is a wonderful piece Martine, it should fetch you a trophy ^^
To make such lovely art from dead winter trees shows you definitely are gifted in art. Great work on both tree painting.
Misty and mysterious. I especially like the almost oriental brushwork for the weeds on the island on the left, and the inky trunk of the grey tree. Maybe its my mood or the composition of the piece - the color does bring the tree forward but my eyes float right past the color tree and meander down the misty river. Very relaxing.
