#5 Geranium Leaves
I glued the cloth using regular plastic glue... and kept them under heavy books to keep them from warping... then I laid down an acrylic paint .... could have used gesso but I am bit down on that. Anyhow I did my fifth painting on this format with crayons and I really loved how it took to the crayons.... not so happy with the painting... had placed a sprig of geranium leaves in a small jar on the sill.... but really didn't capture the translucency of the leaves....have to improvise on the background because my window has latticed shutters and a hibiscus bush in the background . Here are some photos... the photo of the leaves taken way after the painting... the patterns kept changing... another problem......size 18x27 cm Caran D'ache neocolor I
Now looking at the setup I maybe should have done this from a photo and the background sort of faded not too bad.... and of course not at the exact angle.
