Until you see this painting, it is nigh impossible to conceive of the sheer level of detail implicit in a simple image of an autumn leaf. A falling autumn leaf the colour of brilliant gold. Against a solid-coloured background of a pale ashen blue, reminiscent of temperate autumnal twilight.
With the help of a diverse variety of brushstrokes and colour density, the painter has imbued the subject with a marvellous wealth of detail. The body of the leaf has cracked along the deepest lines of venation. So much so that it has cracked in places. The gaping image of decay, and death.
An interesting, visually appealing growth of mould along the surface of the leaf. Executed with thickly layered brushstrokes for a hyper-realistic impression of the microscopic phenomenon.
