Watercolor Autumn


It’s fun to explore a certain theme or subject through one particular medium. It really allows you to discover new elements of both categories. One pairing that may seem a bit unexpected is autumn and watercolor. Watercolor’s trademark softness and grace is usually reserved for flowers, water, and rolling landscapes. It doesn’t seem like an immediate fit for the cool crispness of autumn; but sometimes unlikely duos yield the most surprising and wonderful results.




The pretty palette of the changing foliage blends together in the trees and on the ground. Reds run into yellows, oranges into browns. These subtle variations are perfectly suited to the delicacy of watercolors. Using more water with your paint allows you to depict this, capturing the beautiful variations in pigment. You can also splatter the paint, giving the appearance of individual leaves and a lot of movement.
