Autumn Maple Colours

I can see this maple tree from my window everyday.  I was fascinated by the spectrum of colours it displayed over the last two months. It seems to change colour every couple of days.  This reminds me of how quickly time passes, and time waits for no one, not even trees!  And of course, by the time I finished this drawing all the leaves have fallen.

Pictured below are close ups of some of the leaves I used in the drawing above:

  1. I’m not sure how long it took because I enjoyed doing it and lost track of time 😉 Although the initial drawing of the base leaves did not take long, I continually went back and changed them so that the whole drawing looks more natural.
