Wet-on-wet watercolor and crayon techniques help capture the motion of autumn's falling leaves.
Identify fallen, colorful autumn leaves. Use a field guide to select those that are safe to pick up and collect.
Cover your work area with recycled newspaper. Use Crayola® Washable Watercolors and Paint Brushes to paint the underside of a leaf. While it is still wet, press the leaf onto light-colored construction paper, applying even pressure to all parts. Lift the leaf carefully.

For added color, try a wet-on-wet watercolor technique. With your brush, drop color onto still-wet portions of your painting. Control the direction of the spreading color by lifting and tipping your painting.
