A World of Octobers ~ Sketchbook

Happy Thursday everyone!

Thought I would share some highlights of my noon-time stroll yesterday along the river...of course, all I had was my iphone {as I wishing for my 'good' camera!}  but... nonetheless... it was COOL.  {literally and figuratively!}  And it provided inspiration for my sketch {below}... I hope you enjoy it, too...
And a fresh new coating of Fall {en} snow!

Cloudy and calm.
Those leaves that hadn't fallen yet ... well, they got their little stems froze off!

This is a beautiful one, isn't it?  
I had such a good time with my splashes... may have gotten a little carried away, not knowing when to stop??!



I just loved the sweet curly-curvy brown edges on that leaf.  I used my Peerless, and Inktense pencils for watercolors to attempt to highlight it... while I didn't quite get the effect I wanted, it was very fun.    

The leaf is my version of a project from the class "Wild Art of Abandonment-2" class from Christy Tomlinson, taught by Junelle Jacbosen.  COOL.  

Can you believe October is fast leaving us ~ going to gone... gone... gone?!  
EnJOY!

Love it! I was just talking with a friend yesterday about Fall and Fall colors - I was saying how Fall is a comfort to me - not sure why it just is.........

Love those splashes! And we're heading into a crazily hot summer here down under. I am missing the snow of UK Christmases....
