The Autumnal Palette: Acrylic Colors that Capture the Essence of Fall

As the crisp air fills our lungs and the world around us transforms into a mosaic of warm colors, it's evident that autumn has arrived. This season of golden sunsets and rustling leaves is a painter's dream. With the right shades in your arsenal, you can recreate its magic on canvas, and far beyond. Today, we delve into the rich colors from Benicci's acrylic paint sets that capture the essence of fall and unlock a world of creativity across various mediums.


Beyond the Canvas: Versatility at its Best


Benicci's acrylic paints are formulated not just for the canvas, but to seamlessly blend with numerous surfaces. Whether you're looking to paint a fall-themed wooden sign for your front door, design autumnal patterns on fabric for DIY home decor, give an old ceramic vase a fresh, seasonal touch, or mold clay into shapes of fall and give them vibrant life – our acrylics adhere wonderfully, ensuring your art stands the test of time. Explore Benicci's acrylic sets collection in different sizes: Acrylic Paint Set of 12 perfect for beginners, ultimate Acrylic Paint Set of 24 colors or Acrylic Paint Set of 24 (1.28 oz) with bigger tubes. Now, let's dive deeper in the autumnal palette.



The Warm Hues

  • Crimson and Scarlet (Available in all three sets) - These shades bring out the rich reds of maple leaves and the bounty of orchard apples. A bold pop of color perfect for every medium.
  • Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber (Available in the 24-color sets) - Evoking images of dried leaves and resilient tree trunks, these warm, earthy browns are perfect for wooden crafts and more.
  • Yellow Ochre (Available in the 24-color sets) - This subdued yellow, reminiscent of golden fields, can give fabrics a touch of fall's elegance.
  • Orange (Available in both 12 and 24-color small tubes set) - Think pumpkins, think fall harvest, think ceramics that tell an autumnal tale.

☝️ Pro-Tip: Use an old, dry brush or a sponge to dab on colors like Burnt Umber or Burnt Sienna. This can emulate the look of rough tree barks or fallen leaves.


The Cool Contrasts

  • Viridian and Emerald Green (Available in all sets) - Even as nature shifts into its golden phase, some green remains, representing resilience. These cool greens can be used to depict the last vestiges of summer.
  • Cerulean and Cobalt Blue (Available in all sets) - Think of clear autumn skies during daytime hikes or the deeper blues of early evening.
  • Violet (Available in the 24-color bigger tubes set) - This shade can be great for capturing the shadows and contrasts, especially during golden hours.

☝️ Pro-Tip: Don’t Forget Shadows: As the sun is lower in the sky during fall, it casts longer shadows. Use shades like Grey or mix Violet and Mars Black to create realistic shadows.

The Metallic Touch

  • Gold and Silver (Available in the 24-color bigger tubes set) - Incorporate these to add a festive touch. Gold can represent the rich, low-angled sunlight of fall evenings, while silver might depict the early morning dew on leaves and grass.

🌀 Mixing magic: While the Benicci sets come packed with a wide range of colors, the magic truly lies in mixing. Try blending Raw Umber (from any set) with Scarlet to get a rustic reddish-brown. Or mix Lemon Yellow (available in multiple sets) with a touch of Orange to get that perfect shade of fall gold.


Autumn is not just a season; it's an emotion filled with warmth, reflection, and artistic inspiration. Benicci's range of acrylic paints ensures that you can capture this spirit across a plethora of mediums. Whether you're adorning a canvas, revamping home decor, or adding a touch of fall to everyday items, our paints are your trusted companion.
