Autumn leaves

One of my favorite things about this time of year is painting the leaves. But the drought conditions make me search longer for leaves to sketch.

Not much color this year. Many are dried and crinkled before falling from the trees.Others fall while still green.

Some seem to fall as small branches instead of individually.


  1. These are really lovely Vicky, sketching leaves is actually so rewarding. I also collected some that fell as small little branches and those with acorns still on them are such a great find! Beautiful pages!

  2. Hi Vicky! Your pages are beautiful as usual. Even the less colorful ones make me feel like I can smell the autumn woods.

  3. Thank you, Maree and Paula! I prefer sketching leaves over flowers. Endlessly fascinating in what stories they seem to tell.
