Fall Leaves Workshop Demonstration 2

This is second of the leaf demonstrations. I started with an underpainting of Aureolin Yellow and Permanent Rose and then layered the leaves after I applied paint to the vein side. Once dried, the leaves left a more vague imprint than with the first painting. I will need to paint in the leaf shapes more directly.

Using a combination of techniques including negative space painting and direct painting, I have begun to add layers to the leaves; pushing some behind, pulling some foreward. Some leaves are painted in directly, while others are painted around (painting the negative space).
