I wasn't sure how to tackle drawing these intensely colourful leaves and because of this, nearly stopped after the inked line drawing. I decided I'd scan the drawing so that even if I ruined the next part I had this, then relax, enjoy the (paint) journey and not take the outcome so seriously!
A sensual Autumnal palette of reds and golds..
Colour was created in Bombay ink, Acrylic, pencil and lastly gloss varnish because
though its hard to see it here
the leaves have the appearance of burnished leather.
