Monthly Archives: November 2019
I took the photograph from which I painted this scene a few weeks ago, after the first real snow. Only a few trees still had their colours. Two days later the snow had all melted. The leaves didn’t last much longer.
There is still a bit of yellow in some of the oaks.
A little over a week ago I had some colour in my back yard.
The colours were much more subdued than the previous week.
The oaks on the other hand were in their glory.
But some of the oaks had started losing their leaves.
These were in less protected locations.
One was a victim of November 1’s winds.
Here are 3 more sketches done in ink on my morning walks last week. The watercolour was added later. Most of the reds were gone but surprisingly some of the sumac were still persisting.
I was planning to paint the sumac behind my house yesterday (Friday) but after the heavy rain overnight on Thursday and the strong winds yesterday it looked something like this..
