All The Greens...

I really love colouring foliage, particularly large, broad leaves that allow you to play around with lots of shadows and highlights. I find that adding black in the darkest areas really help to give depth to the overall image, while a touch of bright, yellow green gives the impression of new foliage or bright sunlight.



The images I'm using today are from my new clear range of photopolymer stamps, and this one is titled "Feathered Nest". You'll be able to find it in store from the 1st of October!

It's beautiful....thank you for the tutorial. I've just now myself discovered using dark greys to intensify the color in shaded areas. Hope we get to see the finished pic on card.
