Fading Blooms #6

Oil on Board
40 x 80 cms, 15.75 x 31.5 inches

At the end of the day dusk falls and depending on the weather the light is incredible.  Here, in West Sussex, we have large skies compared to other parts of the UK which is wooded.  We frequently, have the most spectacular sunsets.  I like the colours on the landscape just before sunset, at sunset and just after, because it changes the normal colours from the day.  This painting is about the end of the day but also the end of Autumn as the Michaelmas Daisies starts to fade.  The fading flower also affects the original vibrancy of the colour to a paler version of itself.  

The last of the lilac daisies start to curl their petals, as summer has long gone, and the days grow shorter. Beautiful and remarkable shapes are created by this fading bloom, the seeds of which will sustain life during late Autumn and early Winter for birds. With a few seeds finding themselves to the earth for new plants next year. This maybe the end of the season, but it is also the beginning for future seasons.
