Fall is my favorite season. I love all the colors, the weather change, the scents. It seems that my body is programed for it. Maybe it comes from living most of my life in the north east. I remember when I lived for a short time in California, when September came, I was ready for autumn. I started craving cider and apples. I longed for the cooler nights. My friend, Carol, kept saying I'd see the change, but I never did. I was glad to get home!
This one is watercolor on 1/4 sheet of 300lb. Fabriano Artistico paper. After doing an initial wash in Quin. Gold, I applied paint to the leaves and pressed them onto the paper.
