Lime Trees and Autumn Leaves

I photographed some leaves and then painted  a colour grid. Thought the colours were surprisingly spring like!

Autumnal lime trees have a wonderful contrast between the dark branches and yellow leaves. Particularly striking against the blue sky. So I took a few photos….

Also did several pastel sketches and watercolours – trying to capture the intensity of the leaves and branches.
