"Canadian Frost"
©2017, 14" by 11", Watercolour

This one is another experiment for me - I've never painted anything with a diffuse background like this. Still, it was better than the background that was in the source image!

I found this little beauty of a leaf frosted to the top of my car one Autumn so I snapped a bunch of pictures from different angles. In each one, the choppy form of our not-so-photogenic garage looms heavily in the background, making some watercolour sleight of hand necessary.
