Autumn colour

Almost the last chance to to be able to rescue some leaves before they turn to mush in the rain. These were used in a still life project for the class yesterday, but deserve a sketch to themselves before being added to the compost bin. I used combinations of Cadmium Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna and Winsor violet. Also a little Permanent Sap Green.

Then today I came across these in the middle of town while doing some shopping and couldn’t resist bringing them home to paint in the last-but-one page of my pocket sketchbook. I used quite a different palette of Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Red, Permanent Rose and Permanent Magenta.
