Lesson 52 Fall Leaves

Each session I incorporate one lesson were we look at a subject closely and strive for photo realism. For this lesson we studied fall leaves. We were lucky to find richly colored leaves to work with and ones with interesting twists and folds. We set the leaves on white paper and incorporated shadows to give additional dimension to the work.

Emily had to work around the light veins in this leaf plus depict the dark mottled pattern.

Carla worked on an arrangement of three differently colored leaves.

Susan found wonderful variation on dark browns in what at first glance looked like a rather drab leaf.

Elaine also worked with dried brown leaves, but in her case she focused on giving the leaves form and making them look three dimensional.
