INSPIRATION FOR THESE AUTUMN SWIRLS

I live in the city of Den Bosch, which in English translates into something like ‘The Forest’. There are trees all around in the most fantastic colours and shapes. During autumn when the trees let go of their leaves this results in marvelous swirls of leaves, dancing on the wind.

I’m a typical autumn child. I love everything about autumn: the rain, the grey skies, the wind and especially the coloured leaves. And when those leaves team up with the wind to create colourful autumn whirlwinds I am having just the best time ever.

So I wanted to create my own autumn swirls, inspired by the ones outside. To enjoy them all year round. I started with painting the backgrounds in all autumn colours I could imagine. The swirls I put on later and I made sure the wind was coming from all directions!

The Autumn Swirls are all 29.7 x 42 cm / 11.7 x 16.5 in. Oil on paper. As of winter 2021 they are incorporated into a new series of collages as base layers.
