The year's last, loveliest smile!

 Watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm 12″ × 8″
For me, Autumn holds a special fascination. First of all because my birthday is in Autumn in May, and although May could officially be classified as Winter, here in South Africa some of our most gorgeous days are in May – clear, cloudless skies, temperatures still in the early 20 degrees Celsius and a landscape filled with colour, with Nature unwilling to let go of her summer finery. It is also the month for mid-year tax returns, and I always enjoy getting that out of the way!



  1. An absolutely gorgeous composition. The bands of color and the reach of the branches are so well placed. It's a very pleasing, inspiring experience to look at this piece. I can see your love for autumn in the way you painted it.

    1. Oh wow Kathryn, thank you for that! I must say I really enjoyed the flow of the paint on this one, it just worked out right!
