Autumn by The-Wizard-of-Art Autumn by The-Wizard-of-Art
As Celestia's sun lowers on the last day of Summer, a chill wind begins to stir. The Herald of Winter has come.

Autumn. The third in the series and, in my opinion, the best one yet. It wasn't difficult deciding who to draw for it. :iconapplejacklaplz:

Watercolor on 9x12 140 lb. Strathmore watercolor paper. Finished: 9/8/16.

Wow, this is gorgeous. Soothing to look at; I love the colors. I've been really struggling with the change of the seasons, but this kind of stuff makes it better.

Hey, long time no see! I'm glad to hear you like it. :D
Autumn really isn't my favorite time of year either, and I like Winter even less, but the seasons are always temporary.

Hehe. I'm sometimes lurking about dA. I like all the stuff you've been putting out.
Great point. And the less-fun seasons make the more-fun seasons (cough summer cough) more special.

Rather paradoxical really. The beauty of dying things. But I suppose the beauty of death is that you can't have life without it.

True. You can't have life without death, and death without life. It's an important duality, and represented through the seasons.

Oh my god, this is amazing, and somehow, it managed to make me feel a bit emotional...not a surprise, considering Autumn has always been my favorite season, and I have many happy memories of it. :)
Never actually felt like this about a piece of artwork before - keep up the profound work!

I'm always amazed by watercolor. No oil painting looks so lovely in my view, so nostalgic and really "handmade". Lovely art! I especially heart the leaves and the treetrunk!

The-Wizard-of-Art Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
I've dabbled a bit in oil myself (I may eventually post the results thereof), and can definitely see the advantages, but watercolor is where my heart truly lies.
Let me tell ya, that leaf in the bottom left corner overlapping Applejack's tail is probably my favorite part of this painting. ;p

I agree! This picture detail would make a wonderful autumn-stamp. <3
I heart details so much - self-drawn details, no Photoshop-brushes. They can look amazing and perfect but always leave the feeling and knowledge that they are just effects and nothing an artist really put their effort into. There's nothing more artistic than doing magic on your own and with your very own hands. It's not for perfectionism, it's for passion, truth and imagination brought to life.

It was a rather delicate balancing act. If I'd gone with purely realistic lighting everything would mostly be in silhouette.
