Leaf studies

Watercolours. Various sizes. I thought I’d share these because it was great fun, very absorbing and good practice to try and get the colours and shapes right. I think many people associate watercolours with quite a loose impressionistic style but the medium really does lend itself to realistic paintings that you’d struggle to tell the difference between them and a photo.

  1. Hi Sue,
    The leaves are lovely and I think a really nice exercise. Last week I bought myself some oil paints and supplies so I can get back to painting. I made my first attempt this morning and it was really exciting. I had trouble deciding on the subject matter but in the end I started a still life and a distant landscape featuring Siena! Both very small. Thanks for inpiring me.
