The Last of the Colorful TreesI painted this tree this afternoon in my sketchbook to capture the last of the bright leaves. The sky and the hills across the Bay were a very dark gray-blue. The wind was blowing and it started to snow. It's very likely the leaves will be gone by morning. It's a rather delicate looking tree, but apparently very strong willed - all the large trees have given up their leaves long ago.
I liked the contrast of the warm yellow and the deep blue. Doesn't nature have some fabulous color combinations?!
November 11th - thank you Veterans!!!
