So continuing where we left off...
Step five: the undercoat. I tend to do some yellow, red and leave a couple white to add to the different tones that come through in the end result for the batch.
Step Six: adding the the shading and starting to create the 3d effect with slightly different shades and a little black to bring in the shadowing.
Step eight: the multiple layers of glazing. It's here the individual characteristics of each leaf start to develop.
Step nine: the backs...
Step ten: the Stalks...
Step eleven: Dots!!!
Step twelve: the golden rings around the dots.
Finally 2 weeks later and all finished off with a coat of varnish, a pile of leaves.
