Tulip Poplar

I painted this one quickly yesterday. I committed a faux pas by copying the design of the leaf and adding everything that was there. Unfortunately, it was not a good thing to do since it added eyes to the leaf. I will have to do this one again and resist adding everything I see. I am the artist in charge of this painting and lesson learned...don't be a slave to the image!

I am working on an oak leaf and it is proving very hard...wonder how long this will take. I will show you the outline and you will see why I am having to start all over, but will work out all my mistakes on this copy before going ahead...

I'm loving your leaf series, Sherry. They have lots of character. I would love to watch you paint one - the process looks intriguing.
