Autumn on the Canal, step 4

This picture I took with my Nikon and you can see the difference in the colors from the photos taken with my cell phone camera.  These are much more accurate.

I moved into painting the foreground adding the towpath and grasses along it.  Keeping the colors warm with bits of orange and burnt sienna is important to keep the overall tone of the painting in an autumn flavor.  I am particularly fond of fall colors with all their variations and warmth.

The shadows on the towpath are painted with a combination of cadmium orange and a mid-value blue-violet. The light on the towpath is a tint of cadmium orange.
