Well, a sketch again in Velilla, a little village at north of Palencia, in Spain. Oaks have the Autumn’s colour. Watercolour and pen.

Autumn Trees – Acrylic & Ink in a Watercolour Moleskine
“Come said the wind to
the leaves one day,
Come o’re the meadows
and we will play.
Put on your dresses
scarlet and gold,
For summer is gone
and the days grow cold.”
- A Children’s Song of the 1880′s
All of a sudden the leaves are beginning to change and many are already carpeting the ground. It’s my favourite time of year as everything assumes a more peaceful mood. Long walks in the crisp air; the birds congregating before they migrate; squirrels gathering the winter store; no more having to cut the lawn; clean underwear ……..
We need some other colors besides spring blues and greens, I think; so here is a barn in autumn which I did last autumn. What interested me most about this one was the tawny grass, the oak tree and the cloud shadows in the mountains. It was another perfect painting day (no bugs in autumn) and the colors were intense.
Looking out my hotel window towards Higashiyama and the Kamogawa. Egrets, ducks and sometimes blue herons are seen in the river. Snuggled up against the mountains are lots of beautiful temples surrounded by colorful maple and ginko leaves.

Feather River, North View, Autumn, Sierra Nevada, Union Pacific Train. Was at this setting for 2 hours. Three trains came by! The next day I returned to paint the scene in acrylics.
