Two Little Leaves

Just a little bit of art to remind you of autumn's beauty. And because I had to practice painting leaves!


The one on the left, of course is real.


And here, the one on the bottom is the real thing.

Back to the drawing board!

Your painted leaves are so realistic, I could barely tell them apart, especially the maple leaves. They are gorgeous!

Your leaves are incredible, really beautiful. Hugs, Valerie

very very very pretty! I can't paint so I do so enjoy looking at yours! Were you always artistic as a child too?

Very real . . .your painting, your leaves . . .
I might have to experiment with that lesson . . .
I painted today and used a new fan brush technique.
Fun to try something new . . .

Gorgeous leaves! I love how you captured the multi color effect they get when they change. Hugs-Erika

As they say "practice makes perfect" and I see you have already had a lot of that! Well done and beautiful Jeanie.

Nice work! :-)

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

Gorgeous! At first glance, I actually didn't notice that one was real and the other wasn't! Well done, Jeanie!!

Well done:) Uncanny..guess what I painted?:)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Janet said...

Your leaves look great...very realistic. I agree with Lisa. At first glance I thought they were both real leaves.

Danielle L Zecher said...

Well done! Especially the second one.

Stunning work Jeanie...If you hadn't pointed out the art from the real life, I wouldn't have seen it. :)

Both real and painted are a Monet of excellence, Jeanie!

Nicely done. Realistic enough to evoke autumn's beauty, but impressionistic enough to make clear photography isn't necessarily the only good way to capture an image.

The real ones and your painted leaves are beautiful, Jeanie! It's always amazing to see the colors fall leaves can have.

Kathleen Grace said...

Gorgeous! The first look at the top picture I thought both leaves were real. It wasn't until I saw that you had been painting that I took a closer look and realized one was painted. Very nice!

Vivian Swift said...

Wow, you picked two very difficult leaves -- especially the big red one. Those views of green are killer to do, since the slightest bleed would turn the whole thing a mushy brown. Well done!

Carola Bartz said...

Beautiful artwork, Jeanie! I actually think it's quite difficult to paint leaves and mine never look as gorgeous as yours do.

Yael said...

Very beautiful indeed! :-)

Lynda Shoup said...

Goodness, Jeanie! I scrolled without reading at first. I didn't realize they were painted! Going back to read I looked closer. You have done such a lovely job capturing these leaves.

Bella Rum said...

Beautiful! Do hang much of your work in your home?
