Fall. Trees. Fallen leaves. Fallen tree. One of those will be enough for me to make a painting! This painting has all! I started this watercolor on location at the Durant Nature Park. I used hot-pressed watercolor paper. I love the smoothness of this paper as I can draw details. And I love to draw! Painting on smooth surface is different from the usual rough surface that I use, especially when painting en plain air. And then there is the usual challenge of painting hundreds of leaves! But, watercolor is amazing that way. This was half sheet and the light was low. So, I finished this painting back in my studio.
