Autumn Days

4-trees

While kicking through leaves one late afternoon on the Wyomissing trail, we came upon a stand of trees that glowed such a brilliant hue of yellow orange that it appeared to be lit from within. I’ll have to get better at identifying the trees, possibly redwood, maybe larch, but for now, they are the subject of a watercolor on Arches illustration board. For the sake of emphasis and composition, I stripped away the rest of the foliage.

It’s a nice time of year for getting outdoors, taking in the colors and breathing cool, fresh air. The summer heat and humidity are gone; the serious cold is yet to arrive. And, another holiday season is beginning. Here’s wishing everyone a great and relaxing time with family and friends.
