On The Easel - A New Painting That Celebrates The Season by Laura Leeder

"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive."    -Eleonora Duse

This small watercolor painting is coming along.  A few more glazes on the lace and then "fine tuning" where needed. 
I am lucky enough to have 3 beautiful holly trees on our property.  I have cut some sprigs and brought them indoors and placed in a vase.  It's incredible how cheerful & festive they make a room feel.  This is the first time I have "attempted" to paint holly leaves, practise makes perfect!  
 
Enjoy your day,
Laura Leeder
