More Foliage Studies

More foliage studies, based on Cathy Johnson's book, "Painting Watercolors."

Watercolor sketch in Holbein sketchbook, 8 x 11" (27.6 x 20.6 cm).

I was pleased with the juiciness of the autumn tree. Also, my first attempt at rendering tree bark with any detail. Again, practice helps!

The leaves are so vibrant! Also love the texture you have achieved on the tree bark. It looks very real.
