Painting Autumn Leaf in Watercolour

Autumn has always been my favourite season while many favourites the Spring or the Summer. It is speacial for me as I am just in love with the mellow beauty of Autumn. I am blown away with the variety of the colours in this beautiful time of the year. As a watercolour artist the vibrant orange colours appeal to my constant desire for change.

I painted few Autumn paintings previously. I studied two of them from a reference photo I took myself. One of them was awarded in an online exhibition in Niigata, Japan which you can find below.

I also enjoy taking photos and painting them. Here is another Autumn painting in watercolour. which I studied from my own photos.

I wanted to paint another Autumn Leaf for my students on Patreon. In this painting I used a limited palette. I believe mixing colours always makes you achieve more colour consistency in your paintings if you are using a limited palette. (limited palette - painting with few colours).

Here is a mini video on how to paint Autumn leaf in Watercolour. You will learn how to use a limited palette, working with layers, wet on wet technique and many more.

There is a full lenght voice over tutorial on Patreon.

The video has many language options, please check if you can see the subtitles in your language.

Please do not forget to give a like to this video and subscribe to my channel on YouTube. I hope to see you there.

I hope you enjoy it. Happy Painting!
