Paint a leaf with colors of your choice.
Press the leaf onto the paper.
Gage it to see if you will have the right shape.
With more water manipulate the paint into the leaf shape on whatever parts did not transfer. You will get a softer more dreamy effect this way.
Add stems and little dots and specks of color like you normally find on leaves.

I did a little more work on my horse mural while my grandson was over the other day. He inspires me.
I fooled my eye alright. I have no idea what I was thinking when I changed the horizon line. The horizon line that will now have to be changed back into the right place. And since my grandson wanted his picture taken as he petted the horse I now see that the body is way too small. And the mane that I added sticking out to the side has to be removed. All of these little reasons are why I don’t paint professionally, only for my amusement. Although I have done two paid projects that came out stunning. Trust me I was stunned.
So after those fixes there is still an open window pane to add. That should be interesting with all of the measuring and odd angles that will be involved.
