Fearless Friday, Autumn Leaves

Are you in full Fall mode yet?

I spotted real pumpkins at the market the other day,

and leaves are starting to cover my driveway…

I love to paint autumn leaves with watercolor

like Leaves of Change above

Let’s see what we can create with markers and colored pencils

The photo collage below is what I used for my reference photos

First, a pencil sketch

Next markers were used to outline and color

At this point I decided I wanted to use a fine black liner

to cover the pencil lines and then erase the pencil

Next I switched to colored pencils and began coloring the leaves,

varying the colors and shades

I added some squiggly lines on the sides and bottom

to form a journal page

Then I added a lovely Fall quote

Have some Fall fun and

Be Fearless!

Here are some more things to get you in a full swing Fall mood!

    Yes, I’m in fall mode! I love your watercolor leaves. I’m ready to get my framed prints of your artwork I bought from your Society6 shop out and hang again!

  3. Perfect painted leaves!! I am looking forward to the foliage this fall!

  4. Good morning, Jenna. I love your autumn leaves journal page. Autumn is my most favorite of the seasons and the falling leaves are part of the beauty of the season. Happy Friday ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

  5. You know I’m the only one left in the world celebrating this glorious hot summer, but in time . . . these will be inspirational. Give me a few more weeks. Ahhh. Beach.

  6. I love your leaves, Jenna. They’re so beautifully free and light and happy. I’m never ready for fall, but if it was like your leaves, I’d be more excited!

    Oh Jenna, your Fall leaves are perfect! You capture the exact colors which warm my heart because we don’t have those vibrant colors down here in SW Florida ๐Ÿ™ !! But I do remember them from Kansas my home state. I also remember one day watching a hedge row of beautiful oak trees have their leaves lifted off the branches and float to the sky on each breeze. The look was awesome, watching those bright colors as in your art, floating against the blue sky. Thank you for the memories.

  8. As always, beautiful Jenna! Have a wonderful weekend!
