Autumn Trees

5.5" x 8" brown craft paper, watercolor paints, Pigma pen, July 18, 2012
I was just playing with the watercolor paints, spreading brown and orange paint on brown craft paper, trying to be abstract, and create washes of color. I put a few printed circles of orange on, because the monthly challenge for sketchbook challenge was "Circles." Then I remembered, that I thought it looked like trees on the right with vertical streaks in it, and the autumn colors on the left could also work into trees. So I started to free hand sketch some trees, foliage, ground details, until I had a workable landscape going, it was completely unplanned. I used Pigma pens to ink the drawing, out of my imagination.
