Turning a New Leaf

"Fall Splendor” by Kimberly Santiago

For my next painting class I decided that if I can’t do a tree… maybe I could manage a leaf.

We started by blocking out shapes on our canvas.  Soon a series of triangles became a leaf form (sort of…). 

A few more strokes and some filling in and it did kind of look like a leaf.

What kind of leaf I’m not sure. It looked a little like a cross between a maple and an oak.

Maybe it is a “moak” leaf.

Yep… That’s what it is! It looks JUST like a moak leaf.

(At least I had a lot of fun… )


  1. I like it! It looks like you TRIED to make it look simplistic. (You did, didn't you?)

  2. I love it! It does not matter what kind of leaf it is. The color is fantastic.

  3. You did a beautiful job! And it was fun!

  4. I love your Moak leaf! Well done.

  5. Oh I'm so happy to see this - what a huge canvas you had to fill up and you did it beautifully! ~Lili
