This time of year whenever I go out for a walk, I come back home with acorns and conkers in my pockets. I cannot help myself. If I see them lying on the ground I have to pick them up. I have a nature tray at home were I deposit my goodies for further study.
Unfortunately I cannot pick up all the leaves, but I love taking photos and painting them, this painting of Autumn Leaves has a small amount of water on it to add I little sparkle.
