Making Tuesday: Watercolor Leaves

Hello Tuesday! A photo on this post was the source of inspiration for this watercolor painting created in May. The other influence came from Sande Waters, during a visit to her studio she encouraged me to try watercolors on Yupo. "It won't soak into the paper," she said but if the result was not pleasing simply wipe it off with a paper towel and start again. So try I did one weekend afternoon, the first time was not great, I was unhappy with the colors but the second time went quite smoothly. My favorite part is captured in the second picture below, what was a lens flare from the camera became a complementary focal in the corner. Painting size is 7.5" x 12".
