the colour of leaves

I drew these gum leaves while my relatives watched television shows. 
We had picked the leaves off the ground during the daytime on a walk.

As I drew them I became more wonderous and amazed at the colours and intricacies of nature. 

These leaves were scattered all over the ground at the park. However, they do not have the overall colour and intensity en masse to make you look at them on the ground. 

However individually they are a riot of colour.
