The October Country

The October Country - Rik Rawling 2017

October Country . . . that country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and mid-nights stay. That country composed in the main of cellars, sub-cellars, coal-bins, closets, attics, and pantries faced away from the sun. That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain. . . .
Ray Bradbury, The October Country

A new painting, the first one to be completed in 2017. Below is it’s progress from initial pencils, to undercoat.
