Autumn Leaves

To my eyes, this autumn has been one of the most brightest and most colourful! The trees outside my house have kept their leaves for ages, but the leaves gave way with the gentlest tug. After setting them up into some kind of still-life, and clearing off the tiny bugs (the leaves were moving yikes) I did the initial sketch and laid down the first wash. Once dry, I worked into the negative spaces and watched the magic happen ... then the last thing was to add some harder lines into the leaves with my good friend, the watercolour pencil.
