More autumn trees

Am I in a rut, or what? But I'm much happier with this painting than with the last. This time I concentrated on putting down the shapes until I had the paper all covered. Then I smeared the whole thing with my fingers and sprayed on some workable fixative. I tried to keep the texture and detail to the foreground leaves, although I did refine some of the edges of the previous shapes. The tree trunks and the branches went in practically last. The result seems to have more depth and is less busy.

Wonderful depth you achieved with this one! The colors go without saying, but the depth you got really sells this painting.

This is gorgeous, Jane. I agree with Susan about the wonderful depth you achieved - and those light yellows really sing!
