What a stark contrast between paintings, wouldn't you agree? On the left is a leaf I photographed two weeks ago. As I was walking through our backyard looking for "dog logs", I came upon this one leaf that had such amazing color I had to paint it. I tried to keep as true to the colors of the leaf as I could and I think I did a pretty good job.
On the right is my finished painting of oil cans. I really enjoyed using the three cooler colors on this one. Although my husband mentioned last night that he was hoping I'd paint them in their true colors. Okay, I'll have to file that one away for another painting opportunity.
