In mid-September, when the weather is warm, I feel like we’re on the last days of summer - and right on the cusp of autumn days…

So I wanted to create an artwork that reflected what I saw around me in nature - the tall foliage stripped of leaves signifying the start of autumn, and yet the warmth of summer is still all around us…

I’m lucky enough to get to walk my dog in the fields around the village every day, so I photographed what I saw about me to take back home for inspiration to draw…

I drew out single strands of foliage so that I could build them into a digital artwork using Adobe Illustrator… you can see what happened below…

I hope that I’ve managed to combine the autumnal look of the foliage with the warmth of September days (with the yellows and pinks)…

Yellow is one of my favourite colours - I think it gives a real warmth and happiness to us :) - so I love to use it in my artworks…
