I have looked at a photo of a maple tree in my garden in order to look at a group of colours. I made a number of studies and then chose my favourite. The tiny sections in the photo each contain a main colour with subsidiary colours. I found it difficult to reproduce these in a small area but easier when I coloured large sheets. The pink/red sheet came out too pink in the end and I shall have to address this when I colour fabric in the next chapter. I have written notes in the photos of my thoughts as I went along.
