"Early November"

"Early November" - Oil - 11" x 14" - $400

"The day was crisp and the clouds grazed the mountaintops in Weaverville, California. This old mining community is a popular choice of those who want to live away from the city. Though the houses and roads wouldn't meet zoning regulations elsewhere, the residents are warmhearted and welcome artists to this town's special charm. This view set the brilliant autumn colors against the blue-purple mountain to the south." --- SFG

This is a composite painting. By that, I mean that I recomposed the scene by selecting some components and rearranging them. Mostly, I compressed the scene and created depth with the pathway that leads to a distant house almost hidden in the trees. When you do this, you must be sure to keep the direction of the light consistent.
