Last week I took my camera along during a walk through the neighborhood. My goal was to capture images of the trees dressed up in their autumn splendor. I didn’t do well. Every time I framed up a nice shot, the sun went behind a cloud. So the photos did not come out as wished. I did get a nice shot or two of this front porch scene.
I was drawn to the red door, accented quite smartly by two red chairs. Today I got out my water colors and painted this interpretation in my sketchbook.
It allowed me to practice painting shadows. But it was a poor consolation prize compared to fiery leaves of autumn.
