Thank you for this tutorial! May I use the photo to try following your method, please?
Yes of course! My pleasure. Enjoy. Any probs contact me 😊😊
Thanks! does that count for the golden leaf in blog eight as well? I so look forward till you start online teaching 🙂
Well yes that’s ok but it so much better doing it from a real leaf! The golden one is magnolia and the other an ivy. Thank you I hope to
start a few online courses next year. If you like my Jackie Isard Botanicals page on Facebook you’ll see when they’re launched
Hi Jackie, thank you so much. I find it easier following the steps in tutorials using the original reference photo so I don’t have to “think”, but can follow what I see – after that I find similar items of my own to paint, to use the technique in my own way. It is also a very useful lesson being able to see how the tutor has “seen” the details in the photo, for instance how much of the tiny details are depicted meticuously and how much is merely suggested? Difficult to explain…But as my favorite graphite tutor Lisandro Pena from Onlypencil say about drawing fur: you don’t actually draw every hair, but you make it look like you do!
I saw the golden leaf tutorial after you answered me first, and wanted to try that because there is more video material. I am not after just copying your work! 😉
Great! Please do show me your results. I hope you learn from it too😊😊
