This is a zoomed in painting of a two leaves I found outside. It is a combination of acrylic paint and layered water color. I began with the veins in the leaf and outlined where the red parts were in the leaf. I had two very similar leaves, one dark green and one light green. I really liked both of them so I made one half of the paining the dark leaf and the other the light leaf. If I had more time I would've liked to have touched up the veins and made them cleaner, but over all I like where my creativity took me.
