My Watercolor Rendition

Nothing can match the beauty of the real leaf  as when I took the photo below, but we all know I had to try.. I  framed it and it can hang  for a while. . My apologies to the 'Last Leaf of Autumn' .

  1. You surely don't need to apologize. It is lovely, especially now that it is framed.

  2. Good Morning Barbra! This is better than the photo, painted with love, each stroke precise,
    the shadow clearer, darker, hinting at winter to come! love it The Oregon Ducks WON their football game yesterday!

  5. this is beautiful Barbra Joan, I like the way you did the tree bark behind it too. the blues going into a slight green and do you see the hearts.. the little one of the shadow of the underside right in the middle and the shadow itself is a heart.. lovely, Diana

  6. Hi Barbra Joan: what a lovely leaf portrait--you captured the crispness of a dry leaf ... and I love the wood floor!

  11. After reading your words I'm so glad that I made the effort to paint this. Thank you for your encouragement. You know watercolor is a struggle for me , but no matter where else I roam (other mediums) I keep returning to it.
