Dogwood, anyone?

I promised myself by the end of autumn, I’d improve my trees! Let’s see if it happens.   Sketched our little dogwood tree in pen and then went back with the Cotman travel watercolor palette, then added a bit of watercolor pencil and Neocolor II water soluble pastels for a bit more definition in my Strathmore mixed media journal.   (Love that thing!).

Lots of improvement to make, for sure, but trees are a worthwhile subject.   🙂 Happy Wednesday to all my talented blogging friends. Peace and all the colors of autumn (and spring) to you and yours today.

Happy Autumn! Welcome to Day Seven of the 30 Day Leaf Challenge

HAPPY AUTUMN to my northern hemisphere friends! Let the crisp air, mulled cider and weenie roasts begin! Surprise, I painted a leaf to celebrate lol. 😀

I’m really enjoying this series, and I hope you all are too. Brought to you today by my Strathmore mixed media art journal and my good ol’ faithful Cotman travel palette.   When Hub and I took our little leaf hunt Monday night, we were ready to turn back when he spotted a little bright red one in the middle of the road….and poof!   The rest is history.

Happy Wednesday to one and all – it’s all downhill from here!   Peace.
