Autumn Colors

It seems like overnight and the autumn colors popped. Yahoo!!!  The color is still in selected areas but this is the first true impressive color we have seen here on Long Island this season. When I saw the touches of color this morning I took a ride over to South Country Road in East Patchogue which usually has these impressive red/orange colored trees. They didn't disappoint today! Even though the temperatures were very mild for November I sat in my car (with the windows open) to paint because I was on a fairly busy street. As I told a photo to post this on my blog I noticed I forgot to paint the double yellow stripe down the center of the road...right now it is white.


  1. Wow! Truly impressive colors captured in your sketch. A welcome sight after the grey October challenge.

  2. A very lovely sketch Joan and the yellow lines?- didn't notice until you mentioned them - lol

    1. LOL I'll have to remember to fix the lines. Thanks.

  3. As you know, I love street views like this that you can get only from a "mobile studio"! It's a great composition.
