Autumn Painting Of Maple Tree

Autumn Painting Of Maple Tree

Inspired by maple trees with the red and gold colors of the autumn season, I painted a maple tree with the swirl of golden-yellow background. I think this painting is more like a modern abstract, if I’m not mistaken because I have never been in an art school. I just paint whatever comes in my mind.


I love painting, but I need at least two whole days to finish a simple painting. And two whole days means I ask a lot from my daily routine πŸ™‚ That’s why I don’t do a lot of painting even though there are many ideas and objects that have already taken lines in my mind. So, every time I have a time to paint and able to finish it, I’m very pleased!


Actually I have been postponed this autumn painting of maple tree for a month. I was very busy and unable to paint something more complicated. So, this maple tree painting is quite simple and fast in its process.

This was the first time I used acrylic paint on a canvas. I found it a lot easier to use acrylic instead of oil paint because acrylic paint dries faster than oil paint. So, the painting process is a lot faster which was good for my busy days. Just for information, I used acrylic colors of Vermilion, Yellow Ochre, lemon yellow, gold, titanium white, crimson, burnt umber.


I have now a need addition to my autumn decoration and painting collections.Β I hope all of you who drop by to peak and read my post enjoys this Autumn Painting Of Maple Tree. May you be inspired too by this golden-yellow and red maple tree paintingΒ  of autumn season spirit and create something in your own creations.

See you soon!

Creative Autumn Spirit!

  2. This is so pretty. Just got home from the state fair and there was so much art to see, I took a bunch of photos, they were all so beautiful. They even had art from kids ages 6 and up. This painting of yours would have been a blue ribbon winner from all the winners I saw…very nice.

  5. I really liker the composition of this painting. Lovely work and lovely colours. I never use oil paints, acrylics work so much easier and faster, and are perfect when you have little time πŸ™‚
