Fall is not my favorite time of the year, but I do love the colors . . .
The happy surprise for me was finding out that watercolors can actually be blended to some extent. Working with just the right half of the maple leaf, I colored the lower part with Red, and then right away, did the tips with Yellow, continuing down into the Red and back up 2/3 of the way in order to blend. Then I repeated on the left half of the leaf. It worked much better than I thought it would. Maybe I'm beginning to get the hang of this coloring gig after all!
To all who celebrate, a blessed Thanksgiving to each and every one of you . . .
