Fall rainbow

Fall is in full swing hear. Raking has begun in earnest. Seeing all the leaves on the ground is a good way to look for organic patterns. Using leaf shapes for strings was how this tile began.After all the tangles I wanted some color so I got out my Conte chalk pencils. Adding the background was fun.


  1. I love your tile! I have been thinking of doing something similar. I can see the different leaf shapes if I look carefully. But what I saw first was the color - love the color! Did you trace actual leaves or draw them freehand?

  2. Great fun! Oddly enough, to me the colored portions look like swirly dried leaves.
