"Autumn Bank", pastel by Ralphie Hendrix

Winter has finally arrived in Northwest California, a month late. This past week has been so dark, damp and dreary that I had a yen for some color. Since autumn is my favorite season, I wanted bright, bright hues. This quick sketch from a photo is the result. It is 6 X 8 matted and set in a dark wood 9 X 12 frame. To bid CLICK HERE


  1. What a good idea to combine limited strong color with
    a simple overall shape, sure makes for a strong painting.

  2. Ahh, it's like the sunny day we didn't get to have today! Very nice job Ralphie. I like the colors and the movement!
