Autumn Trees in Pastels

A big thank you to the lovely staff and manager of HSE EVE Thomas Court Hub, who opened their doors to welcome us to join them in a Community Art project running on Fridays. On the most recent Friday we all created pastel paintings of autumn trees.

This painting is a study both in autumn colours and perspective, with its winding pathway and soft earthy autumn colours. Every artist took their own unique approach, though we were inspired by this great blog tutorial on Hodgepodge.me .

Some of the most interesting interpretations came from using a different colour palette entirely, like this blue and pink composition above, which gives the picture an almost wintry feel.  Hope you may be inspired to try this tutorial for yourself! if you do, please let us know how your painting turns out!
