Autumn Colour

I have been thinking about the amount of colour I use in my work after seeing the vivid autumn shades in the beautiful Westonbirt Arboretum.  These eye-catching brightly coloured trees could be seen from far away.  I have always preferred tonal drawings and previously have opted for a muted colour palette.  I liked the contrast between the dark branches and the brightly coloured leaves.  I would like to explore using these colour pallets in future artwork.
