Title: South Canol Autumn
I really liked the light in Nina's photo and I tried to recreate this in the painting. Easier said than done. I have worked from photos lots and what I have discovered is that they rarely show the true value of what is actually there in real life. I therefore often change colour and values lots and I find that Shadowed dark areas cannot be translated literally.
I also add elements to the painting that were not there at all; in this one it is the dead tree leaning across the middle.
