Well autumn has arrived. I love this time of the year as the hedgerows are full of red berries. Rose hips, hawthorn and mountain ash are all glowing red and each time I go for a walk I stop to gaze at them and then pick a small branch to draw. Today the wind is so strong the berries will be blown off and the road will be littered with them. I like the hawthorn berries and have a favourite tree where I pick them throughout autumn and winter. They hang in little groups on the delicate stalks and each little branch has its own curved or twisted shape. Over the months they change colour, from the bright red to a deeper bugundy colour. The green leaves change to dark brown and they have such a pretty shape. I am posting one of my little drawings of the hawthorn berries. I never grow tired of drawing them, they are so beautiful with their simple shapes. Hope you like them. Press picture for a closer look.

I had almost given up hope of seeing your entry for September, it was well worth the wait! Lovely work as always and so beautifully observed.
Wow. Your painting looks so real. Terrific.
Very lovely. Great shadows, as always.
I love your blog with all of your natural finds! I especially liked your hawthornes and narrative--also the acorns and oak leaves.
Great! The shadows are so perfect!
Lovely, fine drawings - and beautiful subjects! Love the simplicity of the composition, very "zen"!
You have some of the most natural, beautiful artwork I have ever seen. Thanks for the inspiration.
I double ditto what Mark just said...I always feel a breath of fresh air when viewing your art! Love your precision and appreciation of nature! :)
So beautiful! I would like to walk there, it sounds lovely.
Wow Milly! Your drawings are wonderful, thanks for dropping by my blog. Your comment about painting on your knee, keep doing just that! I'll continue to paint in the dining room - what would you do will all that useful studio space!... one day :-)
This is awesome! I had to blow it up to see if it was a photo or a painting! Beautiful work!
