"La Foglie" (the leaves) is an abstracted floral with large leafy shapes in the background. I started with an underpainting using cadmium yellow light, peacock and quinacridone violet watercolors. Once the underpainting dried I started to develop the floral shapes with both positive and negative painting. I used at least 5 layers of washes to fully develop the shapes. This piece has a nice combination of cool and warm in addition to many lost and found edges.
This piece is offered unframed to keep the shipping costs to a minimum.
However, it is also being shown with a mat and frame for illustrative purposes.
