Colour exercise - Part 2.

Autumn Leaf - Colour Exercise.
14 5/8" x 7 1/2". oil on birch. 2012.

Side by side - Colour Exercise, work in progress.
I decided to use the  
still-life method,
by simply tacking the leaf
to a flat surface of plain white paper
for the background.
It was fun observing
the leaf itself
and its shadow
on the white paper,
which was rather green
because of the sunlit trees
outside the studio.
This was a good exercise to do
which I should practice more often.
Who knows what will be next!
Please stay tuned for more!
Cheers, ~ Polly ~
