2012. Photoshop CS5 + Wacom Intuos4.
No specific reference used, but a bunch of photos to have a good palette and for the leaves.
I made this artwork to challenge myself with unusual (for me of course :D) atmosphere and lights, a warm and autumnal palette. I used very few layers than usual, and I tried to keep everything as rough as possible, with more visible brush strokes.
I hope you like it! ^_^
