Variations on a leafy theme.
My foray back to painting [after a few weeks with my foot elevated after foot surgery] started in simple fashion. I set up my gouache, a jar of water, a brush and an A4 watercolor Moleskine. Leaves - spring flowers - blooms - petals - had been bouncing through my mind.
This is a shape/form/pattern I've been doodling with ink, and now in paint. Underneath each page, I put a note about each particular experiment. The funny thing is that I didn't start with the intention of painting a zillion variations but got into this groove and kept thinking of more things to try, then I thought I might even go bonkers and fill the entire freaking journal with one pattern. But then, after a few days, it was over. I turned the page and did something entirely different. And I'll share that another day!
