These leaf paintings have become almost meditative to make. This one is on canvas, whereas the first two were on canvas board. I wanted to see whether the technique (spreading on thick paint and then using the palette knife to sketch in the outlines and veins) would work as well on a soft surface. It worked out better than I expected.
I think this will be my last leaf painting for now. Time to look around for the next still life subject.
November is Art Every Day Month! I’ll be posting a new small painting here each and every day. After they have had time to dry (a couple weeks), the original paintings will also appear in my Etsy shop.
