Daily Timeout for Art # 45


Today’s challenge was to draw some leaves. I didn’t want to draw just a tree so I decided to draw just a couple of leaves with the city behind. The piece entitled “The Last Leaves of Fall,” looked different in my mind then how it turned out. I drew the piece and then highlighted it with pen and filled in some of the details with colored pencil. I then touched up the picture digitally. Someday in the future I plan to revisit it, maybe redo it in acrylics or pastels.



I am a self taught artist who for lack of a better term considers myself to be a nob classical folk artist. I love to dabble in all mediums and all types of subject matter. I especially love to add a little whimsy to many of my creations. I hope you enjoy my blog Inspire Arts as well as the companion site VioLil Arts named after two of my grand children.
