Autumnal Sketches

Had the coloured pencils out this weekend to do sketches for a couple of new paintings.  I find the pencils help with the colour choices and I start to think about brushstrokes on the finished piece.

Which way up?

I started a larger version of my Pictish Spirals - this time in acrylics with reds, siennas, oranges, yellows and ochres   I was going to have some browns in there but they didn’t work so overpainted with a crimson/brown mix.  My quandary right now is which way up?
