Leaves Leaves Leaves!

I have spent the last few days working hard on leaves! I threw a deer in the mix just to add to the frustration! I am sure this is like the plateau on a diet, right? I say that like there is comfort in that – I usually give in to my hunger with large amounts of chocolate when on a diet!

It is like beating my head against a wall! I can’t seem to get the pastels to make the lines or layer the way I see them working in my head. I know if I work through this I will have learned something wonderful and have the most exquisite images, just need to keep painting!

Third painting, all focus on deer, very little attention paid to the foliage
