Is it autumn or fall?

I was inspired by Americas love of celebrating 'fall' by decorating their front doors, steps and verandas......gorgeous!

I came home to a friend who has a shop, inspired by my photos of Cape Cod homes, going ape about her autumn window......so while she's looking for a barrow to pile pumpkins in, I've made her some enormous autumn leaves ........and one for my front door ........what do you think?

I swirled watercolour onto cartridge paper and then water sprayed and paper towel dabbing to get some good crunchy texture. Then cut out the big shapes, used a sharpie to draw in veins, cut into the leaves and rolled them to get a leafy shape.......then took them into the garden to photograph and my cat played with them...:-)
