Okay so



i painted these on Sunday or was it Saturday and the camera was down in the car and I was tooo lazy to go downstairs and get it...and i was tooo lazy to hook the computer up to the scanner...so here it is Thursday and I am finally getting these two leaf watercolors uploaded...i used my Daniel Smiths...yummmy stuff..I did alot of washes and had to TRY to be patient and let them dry especially on the first one. I also splattered the first one when it was done so that the yellow had a little texture...just put some brownish paint on the brush and tapped it gently over the picture..splattering is too much fun!!


our house is surrounded by hundreds...no make that jillions of trees..the yard is awash with them right now...and these are some of the ones I picked up today out of the driveway and some I got off the back deck...

Do bad me I did not do the edm challenge...iammmsooo many behind nnow.....

Beautiful leaves, Maggie. Don't stress on the challenges, you're keeping plenty busy creatively - and wonderfully.

no matter the challenge, Maggie -- these leaves are incredible! Lines to colors! GORGEOUS! Our leaves are about all gone from the trees -- seems so fast!

I love the first one. Strong and delicate at the same time.

All of the leaves are wonderful. I'd love to be able to draw anything close to that well. The second one looks like a quilt.

The leaves are fantastic! I like the way you have the second one gridded out -- beautifully done!
