It has been a busy time in my studio preparing for the Expat-Expo in Lucerne. However, some mornings were spent working on my new autumn collection. For further reference and inspiration I re-visited some of my old paintings inspired by Autumn, particularly golden Autumn evenings. They bought back memories of many hours sketching on Exmoor and in the Botanical Gardens in Bath. Here are a few examples:
