With this project we go back to school and put in some good practice repetition, you can use similar leaves and even weed leaves work well as they are prolific even through winter. Laying out a page with strict lines and a pattern to repeat is wonderful as all you concentrate on is brush practice and colour.
I am excited as this tutorial suits all levels but in particular those wanting a basic tutorial and mixing green. I really hope you enjoy this, the layout can also be used for other studies, so I am excited to see where you take it.
Stay safe and keep painting! Warm wishes, Billy
