Sunlit Leaf

Sunlit Leaf, 8x8" Oil on canvas
©2010, Helen Read

My work on this canvas seems to be complete. It is painted around the sides and so framing is not necessary. However, it may not be in its final form. I'm interested in mounting it to a panel behind it and continuing the painting of the leaves all pushed back into shadow... leaving this one protruding both physically and visually. That, of course, will require a little more work and some construction as well!

For now, here it is .... I really like the back lit effect, even though it really was just how the sun penetrated this leaf. It wasn't really back lit!
