"Autumn Shimmer" by Amanda Horvath comes from walks in some lovely woods near her home. The light plays through beautiful leaves creating dappled shadows and dramatic contrasts. I love Autumn, it's the most beautiful time of year in the woods the colours being at their most vibrant. The sun is low in the sky and the leaves are expressed with copper and golden tones, which shimmer in the light. An original artwork, one of a kind, this painting has been created with high quality acrylic paints on deep edged canvas. I begin with observation of the place making notes and taking photographs to work from in the studio. I paint some base layers with a brush and then impasto techniques layer on layer applied with a palette knife, creating a contemporary painting, which lies somewhere between abstraction and realism. The painting does not need a frame as the painting continues round the sides and there is a cord at the back so it is ready to hang.
