Auntmn sketches

A couple of sketches from my autumn handmade sketchbook. Leaves and a dried marigold seed head found blowing around the yard, done in watercolor only, no pencil.
And a pear left over from our favorite new (to us) side dish. The recipe I found online at allrecipes.com. The pears at the grocery were too beautiful not to purchase a few. Of course, I then had to find some way to use them up after their photo session for future reference. This dish was so very tasty and very easy to prepare. (I left out the liqueur) I don't know why I hadn't tried pears this way before, but I do know I will be making it again.

I love the way that you paint the ever so small shadows under the leaves!

What is it about pears that is so simply irresistible? Lovely watercolor sketches, Ann.

Lovely sketches - I think autumn leaves are meant to make us forget that winter is on the way!

I find it amazing that you did these without using pencil first! They're fantastic! I am in love with the colors you chose on that pear, especially for the shadow which I would never have thought to use such a light color. (I learn much visiting you!:)

And, I picked up some pears today, after reading your recipe! That looks delicious!
