A small nut plays the main role in this autumn painting.
A beechnut, with the cupule opened a bit and revealing the two little nuts inside, resting on a layer of leaves. The lower part of the cupule let me think of the bow of a ship. For this reason, I exaggerated the form of the leaves’ edge so that they look similar to waves.
In case you make use of Pinterest, I would appreciate if you would pin one of the images below. They are all optimized for Pinterest.
The leaves of the common beech change their color from green over yellow to red-brown and dark-brown. Therefore, the main color of this painting is yellow ochre, with some brown in different tints here and there.
The artwork is made with acrylics on MDF board and sealed with varnish. It is framed in a wooden black frame (without glass).
