Colours of Autumn  by © Linda Callaghan

I love Autumn with its beautiful colours and was inspired to paint all the colours of the autumn leaves as they are changing. Painted on a dark background to show off their brilliant colours they look to me like they are almost blowing in the wind. (90cm x 30cm acrylic painting on canvas, painted with Professional Matisse acrylics). Original is for sale.

Colours of Autumn

See the colours blowing in the breeze,
tumbling and dancing, watch the leaves.
Carrying with them droplets of rain,
Each one different, never the same.
It has been a long wait to see their display,
So enjoy them now before they float away.
