Learning curve

Falling Leaves

I'd been doing loose sketches of kids, and decided to incorporate a few of them into a fall raking scene. Trying for a playful look, I used photos of leaves and oversized them, a photo of a fence, and "spherized" it in Photoshop. I learned to mask and use a few filters. (I'm finally getting used to my new Wacom tablet.) The children and tree are painted in watercolors. I also painted the background, but decided on photos instead.


  1. This piece looks great. Did you finish the piece for mesmerize? I'd love to see it, the sketch looked intriguing.

  2. No, I never finished it. It was a redo. Thanks for following! : ) You're my first!!!
