Check out these artworks and more in my Autumn Collection on Society6!
You may have noticed that all my curated art posts recently have been autumn themed. Its actually all the same collection, on Society6, that I’ve been adding to every week. I wish I could buy them all, but I just don’t have enough wall space.
Here are this week’s picks, and check out the whole collection here.
I’m in full fall mode, loving all the beautiful colors of autumn: oranges, reds, yellows, golds, and browns. I’m also impatiently awaiting my annual fall foliage pilgrimage. Until then, here are some more beautiful artworks to my Autumn Collection that I created on Society6.
I’m still loving everything fall, and most likely will be right up through Thanksgiving. So for this week’s curated collection I chose some beautiful, autumn artworks, all found on Society 6.
Here is a recently completed sketch of a maple leaf.
I started with just a rough outline, first in pencil, then traced in pen.
I added color using water color paints. I usually like to use markers, but I really wanted something soft and more blendable here.I’ve started building up and darkening the lines. I had some trouble with this. My favorite sakura pens weren’t working very well. I think maybe because I used a mixed media paper that the paint didn’t really soak into? I don’t usually use paints. Instead I used a gel pen, I had no problems working over the paint, but I feel like the lines aren’t as clean as I would like. Its hard to tell on the computer screen, and really, it won’t bother anyone but me.
The finished piece. Overall, I’m pretty happy with this, and I’ve started a digital illustration of this same design, which I plan to have finished in the next few weeks.
