Sketchbook:Early Fall

                       Sketchbook          Watercolor Pencil, White Gouache

I adore the forest just before the leaves begin to turn. The greens begin to transition into varied shades. Some leaves have already fallen; brown and crunchy.  As the leaves thin, vines are on display.  A few upstarts are already showing off their colors, but most here in my part of the world are holding back…for a few more days.

  1. Somehow I think I’ve been here before…or in some equally magical spot in the woods nearby— in this very mellow transitional time of year. You have evoked a nice “memory”; that takes skill, & it’s a real gift!

  2. A beautiful woven landscape, Elena! There is magic here.

  3. Such a peaceful place, beautiful.

  14. Trees are brilliant to draw, this one was a great find by the looks of things, it has a wonderful shape. I love the little bursts of purple flowers all over too.

  17. I love it. I think it’s the perfect look into nature before the change gets here officially. I’ll be excited to see the watercolor when it changes with all the reds and oranges and yellows.

  18. It’s beautiful❤
