Leaf no.2

As you can see, I just couldn't "face the knife" last night, so it was back to Brushes (Business) As Usual. Tonight I may have the courage, however (well, I think I do feel the courage tonight, but do I have the time, is the question). Thank you all for your lovely comments about the painting-knife experiment!

The colors look much better in real life, especially the red on the inside of the leaf. This was one of the handful of fall leaves that I saved for painting.

Hello Jala
Thank you for visiting my blog.
I am so glad you did. This work is what I like very much and would love to be able to see more.
Perhaps we can link our sites

Well, I'm feeling better about my vision. I looked at this before reading and thought "this is not very knifey looking, I think she cheated". Anyway it is a lovely leaf painting however you did it.

Thanks, Bill. I'm glad you like it. Yeah, that definitely would've been cheating, and your vision is fine (well, at least status quo, if not fine). :)
