Leaves, part 2



The second session of my leaves class dealt with rendering different and difficult textures, and how to create accurate color matches. We all picked samples from the collection and tried to recreate them on paper. I’m doing Lamb’s ear, ha! talk about tricky. Instructor Susan Rubin also gave us some valuable lessons on how to use solvent blenders and baby oil to create intense color blends. My brain was full!
