The colors of the autumn leaves were the source of this assignment, which was to replicate the colors seen in three leaves in an image (painting, drawing, etc.) twice the size of the actual leaf.

I was very pleased with the way the color of my leaves translated onto paper. I used watercolor, which I was surprised to find such success in being able to achieve the richness of the colors that I did. However, I was unsuccessful in actually achieving a 3-dimensionality to my leaves because I focused solely on accurately depicting the changes in color within each leaf.
