The leaves are beautiful! And thank you for sharing your ink swatches. I've never tried this brand and it looks divine!
Hi Amy! I did this exercise and loved it! Thank you for sharing!
I'm not an artist, but have artists in the family - the art gene skipped me. Really enjoy seeing the process and hearing the thoughts behind it. Love the idea of art as preferences. Gives me a better understanding of what I experience as a viewer. Thanks!
Thanks for this, it was just the prompt I needed to dive into the inks and pens I have on hand. Also, thanks for the great tip on ordering samples, I have a basket going with them, but I see a few more in your swatches that look like colors I would use. Fun lesson!
What perfect timing! I am taking an art class that focuses on line and color—using watercolor and ink. The leaves here in WV are beautiful this year. I am going outside now to collect some for this project! Thanks for sharing the lesson 😊
Excited to try this!
This is great. I went outside to work in the garden but collected leaves and did drawing and painting instead. Good choice.
I feel empowered to have a go. And I like the idea that we are already curating art when we pick up leaves!
My 3-year old granddaughter, Azailia, and I watched your leaf painting tutorial together. Then we got out water colors and printed some simple leaf outlines to paint. Azailia proceeded to narrate her painting steps as she had just seen you do in the video. It was charming to hear.
I had fun doing this! thank you for the tutorial!
This was one of the most satisfying things I've done in a long time. Spent days walking through leaves and selecting only a handful. By the time I finished the leaves were kind of dull and crunchy, but my drawings felt vibrant with fall color.
