Autumn Leaves Wedding Pillow - Leaves 3 & 4

Welcome to the third part of this project series.  Today we'll take a simple photographic journey through the creation of the third and fourth leaves.

With the vein gauge sorted, it was time to move on to shading the next couple of leaves, both of which were green based.

I wasn't happy with the leaf veins on the the third one either - too straight.  It was rather hard to get them sorted though, and I'm not sure I cracked it in the long run, but you can see what you think in later photos.

On to leaf number four now and some lovely yellows and soft greens this time:

The end of the needle painting in sight.  Join me next time for the fifth leaf. ☺

Developing nicely - and such lovely colours! You've done a good job of evoking the changes of colour in the leaves.

I like that you work your leaves from the outside in. I have done the reverse in the past, but I think this might work better.

Wow, wow, wow! That is gorgeous. Thanks for showing how you achieved it. I probably still can't do it, but it's great to see how it works.

Your leaves are beautiful! I loved how you showed us the progression of how you filled them in.

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party. Aloha hugs!
