"I saw old Autumn in the misty morn
Stand shadowless like silence, listening
To silence, for no lonely bird would sing
Into his hollow ear from woods forlorn"
-Thomas Hood

Old Autumn, Pencil, gouache & digital. 

New painting for the Month of Fear blog. It's a collective of artists that create work for the month of October with each piece being centered around a theme. This was a bit of an experiment for me. I've been working in gouache lately and usually focus on figures with no backgrounds. I decided I'd try out more of a complete scene this time around.
