A leaf which fell from the camellia – a painting a day

 

   6″x5.8″ 15cm x 14.5cm watercolour on heavyweight rag paper

I have a fascination with the leaves which are on their way out or attacked by grubs; they protest in colour. Plants release pigment into their leaves as a reaction to stress or as a precursor to dying. I love the patterns made and the junction between functioning leaf and the part already gone.

I also tried to do some daffodils but they were rubbish, perhaps the composition was a step too far for this small fast painting a day business.
