Autumn Trees Watercolor

Autumn Trees
Watercolor, 7" square

Playing with some watercolor foliage techniques, I wound up creating this scene from imagination with design changes along the way. The first version was too pale and rather annoying, so I extended the path all the way to the front cutting through some vegetation that crossed the front of the painting.

Then I decided to give some bright autumn foliage to the bare trees after I strengthened them. That jazzed up the scene and made it work. So this went from a very annoying fail into something I like well enough to post it. I can still do better and will, but this isn't too bad!
