Spinning a Spell of Fall Becoming Winter
About this artwork
Autumn begins with a burst of color and as the leaves fall, winter arrives, says artist Melissa Gannon. Color is still present but more muted. Utilizing watercolor, acrylic inks, and acrylic gouache, Melissa captures light that peeks between tree trunks and lush vegetation. She employs mark-making with watercolor crayons and colored pencils, offering a dynamic depiction of the season. Opaque and transparent passages in this piece add variety along with bits of spattered paint.
