One Yellow Tree

One Yellow Tree.  Watercolor & Crayon.
Approximately 10 x 8 inches.
For sale on DPW.
I get kind of obsessed with fall colors on the trees, and although it seems like a relatively brown fall (it's been hot here in Cincinnati, even though we're half way through Oct), I'm trying to create what I want to see in my paintings.

This started as a pure watercolor on 140 lb Fabriano on cold press paper, but it wasn't very interesting.  Watercolors are:  quin violet, prussian blue, van dyck brown and indian yellow.  It was really boring.  So I went back in with a lot of crayon.  I think the only place you can see the original watercolor is in the one tree left standing.  

Hope your fall is beautiful.
