Hang on Studio Wall

A 23x36 cm watercolour of autumn leaves. I will use this as a example for a workshop I’m leading in October. A very slow process of painting this one it was painted in very short session when I was was feeling able to concentrate due illness. Not to sure if I like it or not but I wanted some different styles to use t the workshops the others are more loose and traditional looking.
