Another Painting Moment

t is a beautiful day in the mountains. At 71° it is one of our exquisite samples of spring. Could real spring be far behind?

The painting in question is coming along faster as I get into it:

Using a flat ½ inch brush I created various leaves along the same stem as I had previously done with yellow blossoms. The technique is simple to learn and works for many types of leaves. However, this technique works especially well on narrow pointed leaves like these linear lanceolate leaves. Place the edge of the brush at an angle where it attaches to the stem and draw the brush up and out from the stem.
