A Splash of Autumn

 
It's summer, still hot and very sunny, but these warm Autumn colors beckoned to me, so I splashed and played. The squared background is photo edited. The splashes were done with water colors then felt pens for details and sketches.
My boys start school next week, Autumn feels close by when school starts up again, but the month of warm and mellow September is still to be savored and enjoyed!
Best of wishes to all!

This is such a lovely painting, and very original. All your little paintings are so interesting with the quirky birds and trees and flowers, and painting them on to Photoshop squares gives it an extra dimension. I've just looked again and there is a dog and a lady too. I do like this very much.
