A great start to 2018 so far for myself and partner Che Rogers.
Step one : Drawing the shape or marking out the pattern to cut. I often trace around real leaves that fall off the tree in my garden or use other leaves I have already made.
Hence the new work mantra of safety first esp around those things that can do the best damage.
Its here that those all important brush strokes need to be carefully put on as they come through all of the pain layers still to come and play into the 3d effect depending on their curve, so it takes a little while, and patience.
Part 2 to follow "the painting of the leaf"
