Bi-color Brilliance

These leaves were found randomly around the yard and put together after a little touch of rain. I loved the dark green grass against the vibrant fall colors, don't you. The orange yellow leaf has red veins and I couldn't help pair the two leaves together. I find it amazing that nature doesn't have a limited palette at all yet as an artist I'm so careful to put together my color combinations. Would I have included the dark blue green background for these brighter colors? Probably not but I do love the dramatic effect it gives them, they almost pop off the page. So, take a page out of mother natures book and try a new color combination, I'm sure you can find it somewhere around you!
