Autumn Colours

20 Autumn Colours

If I’m not at home,
nor on the pier at Whitby,
you may find me here:

camera, bird book,
flask of coffee, writing pad;
peaceful and content


Availability of Paintings

I do my paintings using Brushes App. They are done on my iPad. That means the original image is on a computer rather than on paper or canvas.

I print them off on a good quality printer to good quality paper (or canvas). I then have them mounted and framed and hang them on my wall.

I have chosen, almost from the beginning, to display them on the web as photos of the paintings. To put the computer image up would be tantamount to giving my art away and that does not seem right somehow.

I could sell framed copies (I have sold some) but to be honest I have no motivation to put in the effort and energy which doing that requires. I would much rather use that effort and energy in making more paintings.

I have also had requests from people who would like particular paintings on their own walls and I have invariably allowed them to use the computer image to print them off.

So, pondering all that, I have decided that the way forward will be  –

1. I will continue to display on the web using photos of paintings.

2. If you would like a copy for your wall then email me and I will send you a computer image.

3. If you do print it off and hang it on your wall then I ask two things –

A. You take a photo and email it to me. That would be nice for me.


B. You make a donation to a charity of your choice. I have no desire to know the amount (none of my business) But it would be nice to know which charity.

So that is the deal

  1. Another beautiful combo David:) Perfect for Autumn in Australia.

    This will be the last thing I look at tonight. A lovely palette as the background for my dreams.

    Off to bed I go.

  2. Oh I love these colours David! So warm and inviting. And the frame is a perfect complement.

    Love the little poem too. And how lovely that your list of essentials no longer includes cigarettes! 🙂

    Love you loads



  3. That’s a great idea! It would be interesting to have that comparison. You could do four different ones and call them Four Seaons! 🙂 and have them on your wall in a square. That’s if you have any wall left! 🙂


    • I have 4 Hockney postcards at home – all in one frame – the same place in 4 different seasons.
      That is the inspiration 🙂

      This location would be a good place to do that. but we need Spring!!!


  4. Hi David,

    this is the landscape then, it is almost abstract, love the colours. A nice idea to write in the park. To be outdoors has something revitalising 🙂 I never knew that til a few years ago lol.

    Spring has begun, so the sequel will be promising 🙂 Enjoy your days in Golden Acre Park!

    Much love

  5. David I love what you have done with the colors of autumn…it is truly beautiful art.

  6. David, I love both the painting and the accompanying piece you wrote. So peaceful and lovely and I instantly want to be there! 🙂 Beautiful…

  7. I wouldn’t mind walking right in and getting glued to that bench, with a strong brew of tea and a packet of Digestives in my hands :). Watching those flittering leaves will keep me happy for hours.

    I love the way the branches protrude into the painting, it makes one feel as if one is standing at the foot of this huge (cherry?) tree, surrounded by its foliage. A beautiful painting.

    Ayano xxx.

  8. Keep on enjoying your natural habitats (:

  9. wonderful
    very inspiring

  10. very well done, David!
    groetjes, Francina

  11. Anna Mark Says:

    Awesome! Love the reds and browns and the scarcity of leaves in the branches. A good capture of autumn ; ) Now, how about spring?!

  12. Ethel says, “You tell that David Agnew this is wonderful.” She says you are getting stronger with abstraction.
