The smell of fall is in the air, and I guess that’s why I thought of this for the Illustration Friday theme, “bouquet.”

Leaves 2015j

(One definition of bouquet is “characteristic scent,” and what’s more autumn-y than the smell of burning leaves?)

Fall’s my favorite time of year, and I try to do an illustration of autumn leaves every October/November.  I just finished this one, which is watercolor (three colors: a red, a yellow, and a blue) and Berol Prismacolor Verthin colored pencil (two browns and olive green) in a 7×10 Canson Montval Field Watercolor Book.

Happy Autumn!
