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?!

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

  2. beautiful photos-you got snow already??? It does look pretty but still, I'd rather only se it in pics! Your leaf is absolutely gorgeous!! Love all the splattering-looks like you really enjoyed it!

  3. I love this, Leslie! And I love your inspiration! Love all the splashes… what do you use to make them? I often use a toothbrush. 🙂

  4. I love this and I love all the splatters. I found you from the Pumpkin and Cider class! I have a blog where I share my art too! 33lilypondlane.blogspot.com

  5. 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………
