Autumn color study – Colors affected by light

Autumn, you either hate it or love it. It means the end of the summer, but it’s also the beginning of an amazingly beautiful color palette.

And an artist that wants to cater to multiple target audiences. Something I very much recommend as one type of specialization may dry up at any time. Others though may flourish.
