Golden Moments.....


After visiting the Turner Exhibition, Joanna and I collected some of the beautiful autumn leaves that lay on the hedges and ground outside. There is so much around at this time of year, wonderful golden leaves, rose hips and much more to inspire an artist....

We put some of the leaves on the table in my studio and started doing some sketches, playing with colours, and trying to create some of the wonderful textures with in the leaves..Even the broken edges were inspiring...

we also had help from our student who seemed to enjoy the rustle of the leaves in the bag :)

Stephie, this is gorgeous. I love everything about it--the falling diagonal composition, the flashes of red in the berries, the rusty brown edges. Super!
