Autumn's Garland is a classic example of the bold use of colour by Tom Thomson. You can imagine what people in the early 1900's must have thought of blue trees. This painting is so full of many different colours and the trick to making it look good is Thomson's placement of these colours. A lot of the bright colours in the foreground are over or beside black which really pops the brilliance of the colours. The arc type shape of the rocks in imitated in the arc of the fall leaves, which sit on tree trunks that are not as brightly painted. All these techniques give the painting a cohesiveness that is hard to achieve when using so many bright colours on one canvas.
