Autumn Forest – Acrylic Painting

Autumn Forest

This is a painting in acrylics on wood of an autumn forest near my home. The green and yellow trees tell us that it is the beginning of autumn. As a result not too many new leaves have fallen so the ones on the ground are mainly reddish brown.

The painting is 40x50cm in size.

You will find more of my landscape and seascape paintings and an enlarged view when you click here. The original and limited edition prints are available upon enquiry.

My Rijksmuseum Competition Entry

painting by Pat Harrison aka Rainer Hillebrand

Rembrandt with Rijksmuseum

The picture shows my entry for the 2019 competition called by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam which had 8,390 works submitted. It marks the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death. As I like to be inspired by the old masters I decided to enter with my interpretation of one of the many self portraits by Rembrandt. Instead of his palette I gave Rembrandt a tablet or iPad showing a photo of the Rijksmuseum.This is to signify where many of his works are being kept with a major exhibition taking place this year.

As always I learnt a lot from interpreting his work. Together with the many books by contemporary realist artists I have studied, these kind of paintings help me improve my understanding of what it takes to create a good painting. The painting is in acrylics on wood size 40x30cm.

Exhibition at a Castle in Weymouth Twin Town

At the end of May I will be attending a group exhibition at a moated castle in Germany. Many people are expected to come to this annual event.

More than 30 artists will be displaying their works on Saturday and Sunday. I will be taking my easel to paint and demonstrate.

Haus Opherdicke is a moated castle which really is more like a manor house with a moat. It overlooks the valley of the river Ruhr and is popular with local people at weekends.
