And a protea:

I like the little cabin. Looks very rustic and atmospheric. Line with wash is a particular favourite of mine.

Here's another cupcake:

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - November 2016

Lovely Cupcakes, Brian.....gentle engerizing colors
yes, thank you for starting the thread.

Tyree - these watercolor pieces are creative and full of depth. Cohesive sketches with rich color and fun detail......great sense of play too.....

Well, I have a number of the featured artist NicholasRoerich on desktop , and collected other photos I wanted to paint in Nich's style but did not get any farther.......but I'm still hoping to.....

Here's to a good November.

Nickel, are you going to the Art in the Carolina's. in Raleigh??I'm meeting a new friend who is working it.....we met in a coffeeshop ...I was sketching and we struck up a friendship........

Nah, my cooking skills aren't that advanced. Just used a bunch of stock photos and loosely based the paintings on them. I'd eat a cupcake any time though, if you're going to make some... ;-)

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - November 2016

I particularly like the way you do the paper cup holding the cake Brian.

I love your richly coloured pen and wash drawings, Tyree.

Hi Robin.

We are definitely getting into Autumn, or Fall, with orange leaves all over the place, and tumbling into my front door too!

Its not too cold compared to the usual weather for this time of year...so that's good.

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - November 2016

Nice forest picture!

Some autumn photos from years ago when I lived in the Netherlands:











Digital cameras were still in their infancy then, and I had yet to learn how to take proper pictures, hence the blurriness... :-)

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - November 2016

Here in South Africa we don't have much in the way of spectacular autumn colours, and what we do have is mostly from non-indigenous trees...

Lovely Autumn photos. Maybe I will go out with my camera tomorrow and capture some fall photos to show.

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - November 2016

Here are a couple I took on Sunday morning. Just my immediate neighbourhood so nothing fancy. I meant to go to the park but I did the WDE instead...my local park has some beautiful trees. Maybe I'll get there one day this week!



Bush outside my front door.



My street.



The walk along to the vegetable stall.
