Fall Leaves

I love those Wine and Design places, where you paint a picture and drink wine while doing it.  I am not a painter, but I seem to be able to make this work!  The place that I tend to go to is Artistic Abandon.  I am going to show you how this all works.

First you begin with a blank canvas -

Then you start to add some color -

With this we painted the whole background yellow, then we started mixing brown and red with the yellow to get various shades and start on the ground and sky areas.  Here is the next iteration of these colors - 

Now we started adding the tree trunks - 

You can start seeing the ground versus the landscape and sky areas.  What I find amazing is how this progresses.  Now I am adding some more red so that the sky area looks like sunlight coming through the Fall leaves!

So what do you think of the finished product?

I just love doing this!  It is so relaxing and fun!
