Leaves Are Pretty Too

I really enjoyed drawing and then making this painting. I was in Pam's garden it was in the afternoon and the light was sweet. I first laid in the ink sketch with a Pitt artist pen and used my Daniel Smith watercolors that I had preloaded on a palette before leaving Austin. As to the paper, it was Canson watercolor. 9 by 12 inches
A image from my Stillman and Birn sketchbook. I went down to this area in my hood on a recent Sunday to get this sketch for a larger painting. It's part of the nice drainage system they have here where I live. I noticed it during our recent rains in May.
