"Nameless Greens"

Click Here to Bid
My obsession on painting leaves continues. I hope you have not got bored because I have been painting one subject matter over and over again. It is crucially important for me to obtain the skill of the leaf painting. Generally speaking, all subjects can be considered abstractly as shapes, value, color, edges, and brushworks. I have been painting and teaching these artistic concepts for a while now. However after having managed the basic foundation of painting, I want to achieve a deeper structural and anatomical understanding of the subjects. It will determine if my art will go to next level. In my today’s painting, I tried to create a textural expression of leaves. I am not there yet, but I am trying.

You absolutely have the colour, value and gesture of these leaves down pat! Gorgeous!
(and they look like a variety of pothos)

I find leaves one of the hardest things to paint and don't know why.
I will study yours, they are beautiful and hope something penetrates my brain.
Thanks
