Autumn on the lake

"Autumn on the lake"
Watercolors  on paper. 2014

"It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day;
the sky was clear and serene, and nature
wore that rich and golden livery which we
always associate with the idea of abundance.
The forests had put on their sober brown and
yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind
had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant
dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet."
- Washington Irving

 I wanted to capture here atmosphere of autumn on lake. fall colors that suit the nature and git is such a joyful look with all amazing colors.. But here is also lots of details that may tell more deep story of that place and time.. 


As you can see on this detail.. when i looked more closely at this part of painting i saw red lips right where the red on painting shows and through that the face of some kind creature slowly starting paint in my head. is so fascinating to find in landscape all those details, nose, white eyes with yellow make up in a area between ground and tree line.. or a funny with silhouette portrait in orange with a kind of red hat right in the middle of this details.. it's all about from with side you look at this details and shapes and what they tell you.

Detail 2

 or as on this details you can find a beautiful and very mysterious, dark silhouette of warrior, who look with one eye on viewer with strange bull head on his shoulder.. or it's just me wild imagination, always gonna fly and search for this kind funny but i thing interesting details! so you too may like this just open your mind and watch, look for shapes and what they look like. i am sure you will find a lot amazing things here...  :)
