This painting was started as a demo, some time ago, for a fluid acrylic workshop.
When I do a demo, I don’t usually think of trying to get a completed painting. I just take an object or scene that I can use as an example in order to teach the class the specific technique or concept. If the painting works out, it’s a bonus!
Since I was doing more than one demo that weekend, this painting was started to simply show how I glaze with fluid acrylics.
The sun was backlighting some sycamore leaves one afternoon so I took a photo. There were more leaves in the photo, but I liked this diagonal line, so I left out several leaves. As usual, I began by glazing on some color.
