Autumn Leaves

IMG_3466Autumn Leaves – Mixed Media on Paper – A3 size (approx. 11.5 x 16.5 inches)

I know it is Spring time, but I tried an experiment with some Autumn leaves and watercolor some months ago and it didn’t quite work out how I wanted it to.  So I hung onto the paper just in case I eventually found some inspiration.

I had purchased some Faber-Castell Gelatos and have used them here as part of the negative painting process.  It seemed to work out well, and I used them mostly dry.  I also added some leaf skeletons and sheet music.  This piece is a bit of whimsy, but I also learned a little bit about how the Gelatos work and got to practice some negative painting.

Hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by.
