FALL LEAVES by Linda C. Miller


Clockwise
  Liriodendron tulipifera, Liquidambar styraciflua, Nyssa sylvatica and Cornus florida

I just love this time of year!  
Here are my new works painted in watercolor.  The leaves were traced but the dogwood or Cornus florida, was drawn from life.  I now tape my specimens to a white foam core board.  This helps with seeing the positive and negative shapes and with a little bit of tape you can create a pleasing composition too!

  3. Lovely autumn shades. Thanks for the tip.... to tape the the subject onto a white board. As a mere amateur it's always good to learn a few tricks of the trade.

  4. Fall leaves have so much 'character', don't they. These are a feast for the eyes.
