Autumn (boyhood memories)

Hi this painting came to be from exercising the dog (Solomon).Im a disabled person and have difficulty in walking so I exercise the dog running along side of my electric wheelchair.


Whilst going up a leafy lane a couple of days ago I could not help but notice the colours of the fallen leaves, I collected some and brought them home to do some study work.I wanted to study their colours ,stucture and to practise my drawing. The conkers were lying on the ground and I took a photo and painted them from the photo.

I also found this to be a very good exercise in colour mixing,allowing the watercolours to mix on the paper which is 16x12inches in size. Im not sure what I was trying to achieve, the conkers brought back boyhood memories for me and i suppose I wanted to capture a realistic impression of them.

This is very good. Your detail work must have taken a lot of time, but it was worth it. Well done.

Hi Edwin,

I like your study of leaves and it made me smile as only last week on the way home from the art group I attend my friend had me clambering in among the bushes to collect her different shaped leaves as she also is doing something the same. There were some really lovely heart shaped ones and of course they were right at the back!!!!!!!!!

Thank you also for your positive comments on my watercolour. I've had another look at it and I think I will just leave the sky as it is.

Eddy, you have done an excellent job of rendering the leaves and the conkers are great, colours very realistic, well done! I guess collecting leaves etc. is a hobby of yours, as you certainly know your subject. Happy painting, cheers Pearl
