Autumn Trees. An original acrylic on canvas painting, by Waterways Artist Jan Vallance. Short Landscape Canvas 24″ x 28″ and 1″ deep.
The inspiration behind the original Autumn Trees painting.
I paint autumn often, and it is the season in which I arrive on my home canals in the North after a busy spring and summer travelling. This painting is based on a walk I do on the other side of the canal from the towpath. It is not based on one particular view, just the beautiful colours of autumn.
It is varnished for protection with a low sheen varnish.
The paint on this picture is built up in layers. It includes gold paint and my trademark swirls. Unfortunately the gold doesn’t show up very well in the photos. The paint is carried on down the sides of the canvas so there is no need for framing, though I think that a good deep frame enhances the picture.
