Sweeping the autumn leaves from the porch


I'm still making more autumn leaves, but I've started to finish them up as I go along. As you can see, I've been making all sorts of colors, some deep in hue and some faded. I absolutely love the way they turned out!

I used a ball stylus to create veins in the leaves. The stylus not only curled them but it made the top side shiny. It also left raised veins on the backs. The only thing that gives them away up close is the large stem. I could cut each one down and color it darker, but really? I have to draw the line of sanity somewhere. I'm already adding veins to each one individually. Besides, they are very convincing when viewed as a group.
