Inktober Day 20 - Metallic Leaves

For today's Inktober piece, I knew I wanted to start with an Inktense background of fall colors.

Originally, I was thinking of doing zendalas in silver and gold. And then I saw the Diva Challenge post this morning and I ended up drawing leaves in metallic gel pens. The quote reads, 

"Delicioud Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it. And if I were a bird, I would fly about the earth seeking the successive Autumn."

By George Elliot

And here are the leaves..

I'm afraid the only fall leaves I'll see are the ones I create! (^ ^)


  1. This one is very unusual! It is truly a combination of pastels (or is that chalk?) and metallic ink that I would never have conceived of. But it looks great and has such a look of the autumn.

    1. The background is all ink! And I used metallic pens.. Thanks for stopping by!
