Down the Lane

15x7 watercolors

i look down from my house at this lane which is particularly beautiful in autumn. I have tried to paint it many times, but did not like the way it turned out. I tried it again today and like it.Today is a bright, sunny autumn day. Perhaps that influenced my mood .


  1. I love this - it's beautiful! Wish I could paint so loosely and not try to control everything. Good job!

  2. Hi Silvia,
    This painting is spectacular! I can smell the fresh air and picture myself jogging along this road with my dogs. It is amazing how much this looks like California. Our trees are just starting to turn red. Not much yellow yet. The reflections of the leaves and sky are so telling. Perfect use of texture, colors and light. And the mailboxes. Love it!
    Thank you for the creative award and links! – Lori Margulies

  3. WooHoo Silvia! This is so beautiful. You have painted the very essence of autumn! Wonderful light and color! I bet you painted this from your deck? Hope it's framed and hanging! I love it!

  4. This is a beautiful, gestural landscape. I would love to be able to paint without documenting every detail. Maybe in another life.....

  5. Thanks to all who commented on the trees. Visit again and see new Fall paintings. Appreciate your visit and comments. Silvia
