Autumn Explosion, palette knife painting

Autumn Explosion by Marion Hedger
Oil on canvas panel
Heavily textured palette knife painting
18x24 cm (approx 7"x10")
When painting forest scenes, I usually like to show some sort of path to encourage the viewer to 'walk' through the painting, as can be seen HERE in this larger painting. With this painting, I wanted to show the 'denseness' of the foliage and the way that the colour can confuse the senses.

Here is a close up of the impasto knife work

This is a sister painting to Autumn Birches which was painted with the same palette and also shows a path.
