Leaf Treasury on Etsy

Original Watercolor - 11x15
Every fall in my watercolor classes we all bring in real leaves to use as stamps for the basis of a leaf painting. First we wet the paper and paint in a loose background using two or three colors. When that is dry, we use watercolor on the back of the leaves to print several shapes on the painting. Then, with negative painting, we refine shapes, add details and create other leaves - always a fun day!
Fall Blues was included in an Etsy Treasury called I Leave It To You To Decide - to see more of the collection click here
