Maple Leaf Study - Completed

"To gain confidence, constant practice is essential. Just as a musician needs to practice regularly to retain his touch, the watercolourist needs to be constantly in touch with the medium."   ~Robert Lovett

While out walking yesterday, I found myself studying leaves with a renewed interest.  
I collected a few more to study....some with lot's of beautiful green to yellow value changes.  
I've picked out one of these for my next small leaf painting.

I was feeling very low today, after spending some time working on 2 small paintings....one an apple(which ended up in the scrap paper file), and the other....another maple leaf.
I was so excited about my maple leaf, the colors were good:so far, and then I started to put in a background....I'm trying to fix it, not sure if it can be saved....I will take another look tomorrow. Christiane...your email could not have arrived at a better time! Thank You!
I seem to be hitting a lot of bumps lately....I hope that is a sign of growth! All the best!
