Autumn Evening by Ferdinand Hodler

'Autumn Evening' by Ferdinand Hodler

The beautiful colors that accompany the cold of the autumn. I have always taken such pleasure, in seeing these colors. Nature always reveals a beautiful color balance. Hodler has captured the beauty of fallen leaves. He reveals the magic of the season in this amazing piece. A delicate set of lines creates the structure of the trees. The sky compliments the colors within the leaves, highlighting the yellow above the orange and red. I almost feel excited for the cold, after being reminded of the beauty of the upcoming season. As I wrap myself up, walking through the cold I will gaze at these colors.
