I did the above tile late last night just before sleep. It's two of the Inktober 2019 days together, days 4 and 5. I have quite a bit of catching up to do.
But of course this isn't a race. After yesterday's spectacular foliage display, I decided that I wanted to shade the tile above in all the colors I had seen in the leaves on my trip. And there were a LOT of colors. I pulled out my General's Pastel Chalk pencils and set to work, with this result below. The blue represents the intense blue sky behind the leaves.
And here they are side by side:
“Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile."
― John Howard Bryant
“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
