Autumn River in acrylics

I finally got around to painting this landscape.   I painted this one a bit differently - painted the whole panel with the blue sky colour first.  Once that was dry, I painted in the dark green forest and then once that had dried I stippled in the autumn foliage colours using a deerfoot stippler - this brush is great for foliage. Then I just painted in the water reflections and added the rocks.  Rather pleased how it turned out in the end.

Autumn River measures 6 x 4 inches and is painted on canvas board.
