Fall Leaves Workshop Demonstration 1

For this demonstration, I started with an underpainting on damp paper and glazed in Aureolin Yellow, Permanent rose, and Quin. gold. With the underpainting, I am beginning to create direction and movement within the painting. I then paint the leaves individually and place them on the damp paper. I layer and place the leaves according to my design plan, considering which leaves will later be forward and which will be behind. Then I leave the painting until the paper is completely dry. When the leaves are removed, I am left with visual texture and varied hard and soft edges. Later, I will use these to develop the painting.
