Yesterday it was freezing cold when I walked and I picked up these gum leaves to bring home. I thought I would play around with it a bit and do a very soft misty background, which is what it looked like out there and paint the leaves over the top.
Sounded like a good idea but of course it was getting late in the day and it took ages for the watercolour washes to dry, and then it wasnt until I scanned it that I realised the background paint was showing through.
One of those boring housewifey sort of days doing things around the house.

Very nice. A good idea to have something up close against the wider background. Gum leaves are special of course.

Looks peaceful. I could use a couple housewifey days.
