I painted this en plein air (on site) at the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio. I used gouache paint on an 8x10 inch archival Ampersand Claybord and sealed it with cold wax. I did not draw first, just used the paint and brush to describe the leaves first, then add the other elements. I used the background colors to add a horizontal element to the painting and express the warmth of the air.
