:: Inktober 9 :: Precious ::

A line is a dot that went for a walk.
— Paul Klee

On October 9th 2004 I wrote in my journal that the fall foliage was at its most beautiful… and today, October 10th, the colours are at their most stunning in my region. With rain announced and some high winds, this might be the only day that the trees are heavy with leaves marking this day as so precious. So I had to paint one of the beautiful trees that line up our street. A bit of ink, and a lot of watercolours -)

I first painted the background sky, then I painted the foliage and I finished with the tree trunk and limbs. I think that in my earnestness I painted in too many limbs…
