Fall Pallet & Still Life

If you haven't heard, it's Pumpkin Season! I'm pretty sure many of us have taken a trip to the pumpkin patch, carved pumpkins, made a pumpkin dish or indulged in a pumpkin beverage...or maybe not. Maybe you had strawberry pie instead and I'm jealous. 

Lately I've been taking a closer look at objects around me. Whether it be while out at a coffee shop, sitting at my desk, or walking down the street. I'm noticing shadows, mixture of colors and where light meets dark. With the Fall weather finally setting in the scenery is starting to change. I have to admit, I'm falling in love more and more as the days go on. The leaves and trees are my absolute favorite! It's no surprise that I've been going to the same brown, yellow and orange color pallet while drawing. 

 Drawing 15-30 minutes per day has given me a creative boost. I've seen growth and also areas that need more work. It's like a daily assignment I have with myself but no pressure as to when it gets done. A little flashback of being in the school's art studio for hours. (giggle) It's no secret, I dream of having an art studio.

Dimension, color and grey?

Show up each and every day.
