Heres another try at those aspen leaves, a bit condensed and this time in oil. I wanted to see if I could capture those same subtle grays, so effortless in watercolor. NOT an easy thing to do, but I think I’m close. I mentioned this the other day in Carol Marine’s blog, on how important it is for an artist to play around with their palette. Specifically by creating color charts. I know! That sounds suspiciously like WORK!! But it does help you befriend your mud and turn it into something beautiful!
