I was really working on these leaves today. I usually pay less attention on leaves because they are considered as secondary supportive items, so I used more abstract approaches to paint them. It was all right doing that when I had a handful dealing with composition and center of focus. However, after I became more comfortable with the fundamentals, leaves have started capturing my attention. The variety of their shapes creates very dramatic effects. They provide endless design opportunities. They look casual and trivial, but they are pretty hard to paint.
