IMG_2370 These watercolors are an attempt at creating more definition in my leaves. They are based on another tutorial from the online class I am taking on botanical art.  IMG_2372 2

The first ones are too dark, and these two little leaves hanging in the air are slightly better, but I still don’t have the highlights and tonal details that the reference photo shows. Grrrrr. Sigh.

I’m going to keep at it though. It’s fun and I can see my progress. One day soon I will switch from leaves and fruit and give the flowers a go.

Thanks for stopping by.
