Autumn Pond, Forth Mountain

I'd been thinking about painting this pond for a while but wanted to get one of those really clear bright mornings - usually when we get such a morning it clouds over by mid-day, but you can expect a couple of hours of fairly consistent light. I got such a morning last Friday, and true to form it clouded over after a couple of hours but I managed to get the painting finished before the light changed completely.

Michael - And you were rewarded for your choice of timing. This is one of your finest, stunning colour and your usual control of values.
