Watercolor Leaves

Just sharing some colorful fall leaves. They look like hand painted pieces of art, with no square corners in sight. There is a watercolor painting technique called wet on wet, which means exactly what it sounds like: you wet your paper, then put paint onto the paper while it is still wet. The paint feathers as it touches wet paper, and the colors create tiny streams. It’s a beautiful effect and there’s an element of unpredictability to how the paint will disperse. Will the edges be red? Or orange? Will the shading be subtle, or bold? The leaves have asymmetrical coloration and each one is a little different. The gallery is outdoors, and the paintings change daily.
