All the leaves are gone

This is a concept I wanted to explore when the leaves first started to disappear from the trees in front of my window in early November.

It was also influenced by the idea of stone-age life, what the changing of climate would have felt like for so many humans back then, especially living in areas where winter was a constant threat looming over them. The coming of the first frosty nights, the trees slowly shedding their leaves: all this must have brought a real sense of dread into the hearts of our ancestors.

Or maybe I’m just overthinking everything, anyways, I hope you like how this one turned out visually! :)
