Painted Leaves

Eucalyptus leaves

These past few weeks I've been drawing like crazy for a project I can't talk about yet but today I took a little break to paint some pretty eucalyptus leaves I found during my walk with Manolo & Turbo. I used a size 0 liner brush and acrylic ink.

How beautiful! They fit perfect in the autumn feeling I am in. It's a gorgeous way to show the beauty of nature and make art out of it. My favorite is the one with flowers and butterfly. I wish I had the skil to create such wonderful art <3

Lovely work Gennine, I thought at first when i saw the little image, that they were ties, the sort that men wear? They would make great ties! :)

I love that!!! Just like feathers. Your creativity and appreciation of beauty always inspires. I think of you every time I admire the end of a vegetable I've just chopped - like the end of a bunch of celery which looks like a gorgeous flower, the white base of a head of romaine. Now leaves will take on new possibilities too. :) Thanks!
