Who Can Resist Standing Under a Fall-Colored Tree?!
I can't!!! I think its just to get near those gorgeous, dark trunks. I like to get right up next to the trunk and look up at all the leaves! The shapes of the leaves, the color of the leaves, all of the shadows... made me want to draw them. There was soooo much yellow happening here, with hints of oranges and reds towards the top! As you looked up, the shapes of the leaves almost disappeared with all the bold colors. My eyes had to search for the outlines of the leaves to remind me what I was looking at! Really cool to me!! :) Phil probably thought I was nuts! :)
