For the Minimalism Inspiration project @ Simple-ism.

Inspired by the colours of autumn in the maple leaves. I love the bright fresh colours of those leaves against a blue October sky.

Leaves were done in openCanvas 4.06 with Wacom Graphire. The style is the same I used for the banner I made for MTM issue 4.

The leaves are different shapes due to the species of the maple. Left to right: Red Maple, Sugar Maple, Silver Maple, and Black Maple.

The leaves were the easy part. It took much longer to decide on the layout and stuff....

    Agree with Sakura, it looks classic, which is good. I like the frames and their inner colour. And good job with the painting.

    mmm, I love maple leaves. Nice and simple and gives me a refreshingly nice, cool feeling... It's so hot where I am right now so this hits the spot.

    Good work.
    Leaves are surely complex. But you chose to keep them simplistic :ya:

    Sincere thanks for sharing!

    Yay, autumn's finally here! *bounces* This wallpaper is just what I needed to celebrate the fact that I survived another "Hot-out-of-Hell" summer :)

    Great job!

    Yep, that's definitely a sign that you're Canadian. Way to be patriotic. Just kidding, nice job though. It's simple, yet refreshing.
