Fall Colors Painting Demo

I spent a weekend with friends at a cabin about a month ago.
  The colors, photos, weather and friendship were perfect that weekend. 
I used one of the photos to do this 9x12 inch watercolor 
as a demonstration for my watercolor students. 
We talked about the layers of a painting and how to show direction and depth. 
It is good to identify the layers in a busy image so that you can paint with a plan.
The color was fun too.
Happy Thanksgiving!
