Painting green leaves

Today I have had the first of a two-day workshop on painting leaves.

I have to say that the challenge has been accepted and a page of very different leaves has been started in coloured pencil. Each of the leaves have different coloration and different textures from very smooth and shiny to hairy.

The morning was spent in designing and drawing the layout so that it could be transferred to the paper for the final work. The first leaf painted was hairy and I was incredibly proud of the result.

It is such fun seeing people develop their skills and ambitions in botanical art. Hopefully those taking part will be just as chuffed at the end of tomorrow.
