Autumn has always been my favourite season. Growing up in Europe, it was clearly delineated by the falling leaves at the end of summer, and the onset of a real, often snowy, winter. This seasonal change was the thing I missed the most about Europe when we moved to NZ – that is, until we moved to our place in the Western Hills. Here, we have deciduous trees, mushrooms and toadstools, and even an apple tree to harvest.
I decided to challenge myself to make a more stylised autumnal design this year, so I started drawing leaves.
I found that they worked really well, in a midwestern USA kind of way, over some of my plaids – so, I went with it. I hope you like them 🙂
