A quick walk around the neighborhood today turned up the prop I needed for today's photo shoot - a colorful Sugar Maple leaf! I'm quite pleased with how my hand dyed thread looks in comparison to nature's beauty.
There's not much bright yellow showing in this particular batch, although I did paint yellow on. It sort of got blended into the surrounding colors - although some of the skeins show more yellow than others. My plan for a future batch (a remake of "A Leaf Falls") will have more yellow in it and green, but no orange. Then, at some point I'll try to dye something with darker, brownish shades.
