We like this oil painting of autumn in Hyde Park, London by our resident artist Mary Stubberfield. There is something about those mauve trees, blue skies, autumnal leaves and clean lines that give the artwork a tranquil feel.
It is the last day of October and there is one more month of autumn and this spectacular season doesn’t cease to amaze us with its colourful leaves all around us. No wonder why artists of all times are and have been inspired by autumn, offering their own interpretation of it.
Yellow, orange, brown and mauve – these are just a few colours found in nature and captured by the artist in her painting. The predominant colour is mauve and it greatly complements the yellow of the leaves while contrasting with the blue sky.
If we look at the artist’s biography, we learn that she is trained as an illustrator and she designed book covers, magazines, children’s books and greetings cards to name just a few. The illustrative element can be seen in this painting in the straight lines and simplified shapes, without losing its depth.
Joining a long tradition of landscapes, autumn and oil paintings, Autumn by Mary Stubberfielf is contemporary and pleasant to look at, promising that it will stand the test of time.
