A Leaf Study

It feels like fall is in the air!  I especially notice it at the lake as the leaves start to change colors, the temperature cools in the evening and the days start getting shorter.

Summer is my favorite time of year but I also like fall.  I love all the autumn colors!

Last fall, I took an online watercolor class from Fred Lisaius where I did a leaf study:

I liked the simplicity of the assignment and how the shading brought the leafs to life!

So this year, I decided to start gathering some leaves and berries:

And start studying them in my art journal.

I have lots to choose from in my yard:

shale leaves and berries

And I plan to collect a few at the lake too!

What do you like best about fall?  I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Journaling!  🙂
