EDM Challenge#59 Signs of Autumn.
Ink pen and watercolour.

Nothing very autumny is happening in my garden as most of my plants are evergreens and I have already pruned the seeds or fruits away. However, I found the remains of an agapanthus seed head and a silver birch catkin. The vase is a turned banksia nut.
Actually Autumn here is a time of renewed invigoration for me as the drying days and oppressive nights are left behind, replaced by crisp mornings and cycling/bushwalking/doing weather.

Excellent drawing/painting. I love the vase.

Wow -- great drawing. It says "autumn" no matter where in the world you are; I think the angle of the light (shown by the shadow) is the real key. Wonderful!

Thought that you would be getting autumn way before we did here on the coast, Alison. I managed to scrounge a fallen leaf for my drawing during a walk to the coffee shop at morning tea time today.

I like your drawing very much. It is very atmospheric.

Cheers,

There are some very unusual and interesting things going on in your work. I will have to take time to study & enjoy (them). Shadows--textures--wow.I noticed the Morandi reference; A group of us did sketches for the duration of the Morandi Exhibit at the Met this fall.
