Leaves need also attention
My Watercolor Painting Instruction shows you how to paint leaves on roses and flowers. Although I love to paint leaves in watercolor on rose and flower paintings I have figured out that they are often the most with which we struggle with when it comes to paint them. We put all the energy into the flower so that it glows, is gentle and soft – because it is the focal point of our painting.
But we often forget to give the same attention to the surrounding leaves of the flowers. Leaves do support our flowers, they give dimension to the painting and background and we recognize already the flower when we only can see the leaf. We know the leaves and we are aware about them and we don’t want to miss them. We want rich green leaves, light yellow leaves, autumn leaves, spring leaves, blue leaves, red leaves. I show you how to paint leaves in these watercolor lessons.
