Autumn Leaf

An autumn leaf that I found on my walk today.  With this painting I tried to stay very connected with where I was laying my brush stokes and the value and color I was using.  For some reason I am beginning to feel very connected with my own style and painting procedure.  I know that this sounds rather crazy since  have been painting for some time now.  The one thing that I was aware of today was value relationships.  I worked very hard to lay the correct tones in without too much editing.  I did end up wiping out whole areas and starting over several times.  I keep thinking about the avoidance of petting the paint.  Gosh that makes so much sense.
