While Working on Trigger ...


Laid in a wash of cobalt blue and alizarin.

Several glazes of aureolin, new gamboge and quin. burnt orange.

More quin. burnt orange, quin. siena and a green mixture.
The dark is my favorite orange, purple, blue mixture.

Same blue and red mix for shadow. Again, quin. burnt orange, quin. violet and aureolin.

Same colors, just intensifying them with a w/w wash in the shaded area.

Why these are cock-eyed, I don't know. They are aligned properly in my album.
Anyway, same red and blue for the shadow and the graded wash.

I'm pretty much using the same colors with all three leaves.
All are small pieces - less than 60 square inches. Just something to play with, while working on Trigger.

As always, your comments are most welcome.


  1. I love your leaves! Good luck with Trigger (I just read your other post)!

  2. At least a client knowing what it is they want. I guess the Likeness was the key thing ... bad likeness=unhappy client :0)

    Love the leave, it's that time of year again

    Have a good weekend, Kathryn, rest those muscles

  3. These leaves feel like a musical score to me -I would love to see them in person, side by side to see how they interact with each other.
