Welcome back to our Star Wars coloring book club, where Kiri at Star Wars Anonymous and I color the same image every month to compare and contrast.
This month’s image was so funny to me because of the incongruous mix of roses and a B2 super battle droid. So I decided to play into this and make this picture as pretty as possible!
I used mostly “rose” colors: peach, pink, red, yellow, etc. Then I threw in some green for leaves and some light blue to balance. My favorite thing was trying to make the roses look like stained glass by outlining the petals in a darker shade.
Fall is not my favorite season; I don’t look forward to colder weather. But it is unquestionably Ohio’s best season, and every fall I look forward to the seasonal hallmarks of leaves changing and neighborhood kids Trick-or-Treating.
I love taking hikes to see the beautiful leaf color and identify all the trees. If you live in the Midwest or Northeast, you can use these two posts to help you identify some leaves you’ll see changing right now, including oaks, maples, sassafras (at right), hickory, and others.
I also love curling up with a good book; in my Seasonal Reads series I discussed two great books that I love to re-read at this time of year: one a classic eerie tale, and one a funny and thrilling modern urban fantasy.
Libraries always seem like magical places to me. The library at Trinity College (which also houses the Book of Kells) certainly has a magical gallery. The sun shining through the window of this alcove gives the stacks of books a warmth that echoes my own feelings of contentment at being in such a place.
