Fallen Leaves

This painting was started months ago but was set aside while I was on vacation.  Today I found it in a stack of old paintings I was going to recycle and decided to go ahead and finish it.  Because the paints I used were cheap liquid watercolor I knew I needed to be careful in my approach.  Or better yet, just try to accomplish some depth and shadows.  I love negative painting and I still have a lot to learn but it's also a ton of fun just playing with the various wet media.  I ended up using walnut ink, acrylic ink and more watercolor in a violet & deep yellow.
