I made some of the colours more solid. I got rid of the grey leaf. I gave the edges of the leaves definition. Finished.

Autumn leaves montage stage 5

image

Having done the leaf outlines in paint in stage 4, I have filled them in with various tones and mixes of reds, browns, yellows and olive green. The final stage will be to strengthen some of the colours, finalise the outlines with fine lines for the edges and veins of the leaves and put some highlights in.

Stormy landscape stage 1

Landscape I am doing today has a stormy overcast sky above a lake with a couple of houses, some trees and a windmill. I thought I would show you in stages how I am painting it.
I started with a white canvas and have added various mixes of grey for the background colour, applied in circular motions with a number 10 round brush. I added a darker shoreline in the centre and the bottom of the canvas.
