The Warm Autumn Colours

Last night's sketchbook pages.


Tumbling autumn leaves remind me that we're in a new season

and the virginia creeper in my garden changes from green to red.




One of the last blooms hang on in there!

So you see, my mind is filled with the warm colours of autumn. I didn't have many flowers growing this year so not to be defeated, I've bought some bulbs that should flower in the winter so that will be something to look forward to won't it?
A quick reminder to you too that the bids on my life drawings on Ebay are finishing in less than 24 hours and most of them are at 99p, almost a giveaway price! :)
Please click here to see them.

Have a lovely weekend!xx

We're just starting to head into our colorful season! (People come from all over, and I can't ever get anywhere on time while they all flock to Vermont to stare at trees, but I admit that they are pretty.) It really does just change the painting-flavor, doesn't it? :)

Amalia K said...

I'm so jealous of your neat and beautiful sketchbook! Makes me want to hide mine under the mattress! LOL.

So glad to know that you're settling in nicely into autumn. :)

Oh Jess, this is all so captivating! Your autumnal representations are spectacular. Your header, by the way, makes me happy. I was looking at the 'garden girl' ,I purchased off you, as I call her this morning again and thinking of you.

Beautiful! I really like the way you drew those falling leaves. And the girls are wonderful too. I love the sense of movement both pieces have!

The trees in my street are already orange. I'm guessing the leaves will fall of soon, but I'm enjoying the stunning colors in the meantime;)
