Autumn Leaves IV - A Work in Progress

Today I didn't have a lot of time to paint but I wanted to get a little more work done on the painting of autumn leaves I had started earlier this month (see post on 13 October 2015).

Using washes of burnt sienna, raw sienna, alizarin crimson, new gamboge, aureolin and a green of Antwerp blue and raw sienna a base coat was added to define each of the leaves.

By being careful when applying the washes to make sure that each leaf was not in contact with any other wet leaf so the paint did not bleed into another one or make the colour muddy.

As I finish each of the leaves I will post this painting to the blog.
