Summer ShowStoppers 4

Here you can see I have darkened some of the leaves a little more!

Now you really get a feeling of leaf.
As a painter, I get the anticipation of how lovely the fuchsias will look.

Can you see how painting the leaves a little darker really makes the background look like it has some distance to it?

I still find that remarkable, because the paper is flat, yet I feel drawn in..


  1. That is so clever - thankyou for the tips
    It really works, the background is lovely

    I cant wait those flowers are just going to POP
