"Leaf," 8x10, oil on gesso board

Sold. I live where I get to hike pretty much every day. I love this. The dog loves this. I often see leaves that seem to contain colors that don't appear in nature, which is silly, of course. Leaves are interesting to paint. If you really, really try to do all the detail, then you have to paint the whole skeletal structure, which is a mind-boggling concept. Instead, they make wonderful inspiration for impressionistic pieces.
