In my attempt to capture a forest’s worth of fallen leaves, I painted dots for days on end, letting each layer dry and then painting more dots on top. It took several weeks of work before I was satisfied with the effect. As I painted I could smell the forest floor in autumn, the welcoming, quiet scent of decaying leaves. And on the covered ground I could hear the muffled whisper of deer hooves, mysterious like the approaching footsteps of winter.
