My Watercolor Painting DVD Lesson and Online Video 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. Just have a look in to my Rose Paintings Gallery or Flower Paintings Gallery and you can easily see how wonderful supportive the leaves around the roses and flowers are. But often we 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. With this Watercolor Instruction DVD you too can now create wonderful realistic and painterly leaves.

Dear Doris, Your DVD’s arrived late this afternoon much to my pleasant surprise. I thought they would be much later. I watched the one on painting leaves as soon as I got it. It is wonderful. You make everything look so easy. I can’t wait to try your techniques. I mostly do wet in wet, but now I will try wet in dry. Your leaves are simply gorgeous. Thanks again for that wonderful DVD. Can’t wait to view the other one. Do you use cold pressed or hot pressed paper?
Sophie, Canada
