pink leaf

Leaving; casein on panel; 10" x 8"

The snow covered woods outside the window from this still life set-up cast a magical light.  It was difficult to see my panel at times it was so bright.  Every so often, it helped to take the panel into another room - to make sure I was seeing, and painting, true to life.

This was an exercise in drawing as the leaves and stems created a complex arrangement.  Add to that the endless shifts of values and color, painting green next to pink, light leaf against dark background and vice versa.  It's done - I'm content.
