Leaves – Sketch

Today’s watercolor is a departure from my recent spate of abstracts. The other day, as I was coming up the walk, something caught my eye. It was the color and arrangement of shapes on the ground. Two leaves were partially entwined. There were some interesting and subtle colors and shadows that I thought I could reproduce.

Even if I wasn’t completely successful in replicating the image from the photo, it was very nice to sketch again. I found myself paying attention to detail again, to relationships between shapes and to colors and color changes. It was a refreshing change.
