Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower ~ Albert Camus
When we arrived at our hotel in Connecticut I opened the car door and there on the ground was this most gorgeous leaf – right there at my feet. Well I took that as a sign that we were in for a show stopping trip and what a show it was ~
CT Fall Leaf an oil pastel (4.5 x 7) was painted on yellow ochre Mi-Tientes paper. The vibrancy of the leaf was developed by using pure OP colors and not blending, and figured that the dark background (black, magenta, virdian and indigo) would set off the brilliance of the leaf. Albert Camus was so right, it really was a second Spring of dazzling color.
Thanks for checking in ~
