This is my first take on this weeks challenge, "The Fall's Challenge" , on the DPW homepage. The challenge is to paint what is around us now when the fall has arrived. Am doing other things right now, but wanted to do this, so I came up with this. A suggestion in the challenge was to use a drastic under-painting, something that I totally forgot to do when I threw myself into the challenge.
I took some close-up pictures of bushes with red berries. The leaves had mixed colors, some green, some yellow and so on. Wanted to keep it fresh, spontaneous and with big bold brush strokes.
