Oak Leaf 1 - A Work in Progress

Today I came across a number of photographs I had taken last fall of leaves on the ground with water droplets on them.

I thought I would do a small painting of oak leaves and perhaps in the future do other kinds of leaves with water droplets.

After putting the main leaf down, I indicated other leaves beneath it and then placed water droplets on the leaf.

Using a wash of burnt sienna I painted in the main leaf and left spaces for the three water droplets white.

With various tones of burnt sienna to make the water droplet and its cast shadow, I put in the largest water drop.

I will post this painting at a later date once the painting has been completed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
