Holly, Ilex aquifolium
Now I am working on the leaves. The leaves are interesting to paint as there is a strong contrast of light and dark. I am using colours, sap green, midnight green, sunlit green, lemon yellow and neutral tint.
I am laying down washes on the leaves, leaving areas of white paper for highlights to shine through. Will keep you updated with my progress, if I can remember to take photographs.
