I got the chance to make another lotus leaf painting, this time with Himapan Japan. I wanted to experiment with layering and mixing colors more this time, and here's what I came up with:

I'm so happy with how it turned out!  I made it with the colors of my parents' guest room specifically in mind, but am starting to wonder if I shouldn't just keep it myself... ;P

Here's the canvas before I worked on it.  I chose one that already had gold leaf on one of the leaves.  Ignore the tubes of paints; I was trying to plan out the colors for the leaves but ended up changing my mind anyway!

Here I am working on it:

And here it is painted but not glazed yet:

And me and a friend with our finished paintings:

Feel free to PM me about personal swaps!  Hoopla, TM Patches, mug rugs, magnets, felt, ornaments, etc...

That is lovely! I like the gold leaf canvas you chose, and all the colors are very Autumn-y and soothing. Smiley

Very cool! Looks like fun and they turned out so great.
