Today I painted fall colours, the yellow and red tones beautifully complemented by the green grass below and the far purple.

I made a rough paper sketch to study the tree branches mostly. It's one of my weak points. Final Sketch on Watercolor paper was too light to be seen in pic

Started to paint the tree when it was ready.
First the yellow leaves and then added oranges and red to it followed by main branches and the trunk

Burnt sienna mixture with violet and Grey's again here for the trunk with few lines made by scrapping the paper when wet
