Autumn Study in the Style of Z.L. Feng

When I received the August issue of Watercolor Artist magazine, I was immediately fascinated with the work of Z.L. Feng.  One of her paintings was on the cover and caught my attention and the article and photographs of her works sealed the deal!  I am a fan of Z.L. Feng.  In this particular painting I used the cover photo as my inspiration.  The painting is 10" x 8" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed Fabriano-Artistico watercolor paper.  I am now ready to use a reference photo I took this fall in Wisconsin and attempt this style of painting again - I'll let you know how things work out!
