Painted Leaves

Last year I did a leaf study of autumn leaves in watercolor that I previously posted.  You can see it here.

I wanted to try it again this year!  Below is my photo of 3 leaves that I used as my reference:

And here is my watercolor painting:

I need to go back and add a second coat of watercolor paint to my Maple leaf but overall, I am pleased with my results.

Happy Creating!  🙂

  2. You should be pleased with your results, they are beautiful. Your shadowing is great, the leaves look like they could lift off the paper with a passing breeze. Happy creating to you as well! ;D
