Autumn Leaf day 4…..

This afternoon I enjoyed a walk in Peasholm Park, looking at the trees, picking up leaves and dodging the squirrels which were everywhere.  They are so tame they take peanuts straight out of your hand.

The leaf I chose for today’s offering was a huge Horse Chestnut, again created using Inktense pencils and the Pilot fine point pen.  Painting is still feeling alien to me and its taking far too long to paint/draw these leaves.  I am adding the pen to try to give them some definition but I’m not liking the result.  When I get back home I’m thinking of switching to collage or fabric as my medium…..or do I persevere with the painting?  After all, this is a challenge isn’t it?
