A Leaf in Watercolor

I found this leaf in a shopping center parking lot. The wind was blowing the leaves all around. I picked it up, then saw another with slightly different coloring and chased after it. I saw a few others that I thought would make good sketch subjects, so I chased after them as well, zig-zagging after them as the wind tried to keep them out of my reach.

Maybe you saw me running around the parking lot picking up leaves? They were all so pretty. Don’t let this grey hair fool you: my inner child was happy.

I worked on it a little more after I photographed it the first time; it was not dark enough.

Too light.

Too light.
