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.

They’re beautiful. Leaves are a wonderful subject for painting, aren’t they? Such wonderful shapes and colors.
Lovely time of year for painters, not so good for gardeners! Glad you like them.
