Foliage FTW!

Who would have thought that painting foliage was do time-consuming, difficult, and frankly, so much fun!

Its really quite interesting to have to break down the forms and colors in order to portray the ideas of the leaves.. Because lets be frank, I’m no hyper-realist when it comes to painting skills. I don’t really want to be one either.. Im well aware of the difference between the image and the object portrayed. I’d like it to stay that way. This is the second back-panel from the Billy bookshelf I’m painting. It’s not finished as you can see, but well on its way..

I’ll write something about the golden fish spouting water some other time!
