Maroon Leaves (Digital Print)

Maroon Leaves (Digital Print)

This is one more of the digital images I have been making with Painter's pattern pen. (I call them digital prints.) I used the same pattern I have been working with, created from a photograph of yellow leaves that I took recently. I am using digital pastel with the pattern pen, so I get the shapes of the leaves, but not the original colors of the photo. After I made a few strokes with the pattern pen, I posterized the result, experimenting with the level until I got the effect I wanted. Then I cropped several times, closer and closer, until I got this composition.
