"Fallen in November"
 
Oil - 24 x 36
 
Here's my layin phase in progress. I found this subject right at the end of its season. The first several days are a "get to know you" part of the experience for me, and you might notice my sketch is a little uncommited with the lighting. The glare here moves from left to right across the stream through the late morning. It took seeing it several times to decide that left of center was the magic moment for this piece. Next November I'll be back at it.
