Full View Please!

I was going through a book and found an Ivy leaf I had pressed in there a long time ago and which I had forgotten. For some reason I just really wanted to see if I could paint on it :D
I know it got a little bit dark.. sry.. but I'll probably do this again so better luck next time^^

Abosuletly amazing. I like the idea of the painting in general, but the fact that it's painted on leaf really makes it special.

Haha, I can see that happen in my family if I ever painted something similar :D For now I only get requests for pictures... Which can sometimes be pretty annoying too, as they sometimes seem to don't realize how much time (and even money) I put into my paintings :D

yeah same here. My Aunt asked me if I could do a family portrait of their family (aunt, uncle, 2 cousins). I said yea maybe if I find the time. A week later she calls my dad and complains why it isn't done yet and she reminded him that I promised ( I never really promised it !) her I'd draw the portrait.
So yea, its been on my desk for almost a year now because I just don't find the time to finish it, also I don't like my aunt much, neither do I like doing portraits that much^^ :P

Hmmm, sweet aunt :D No wonder you don't want to make a paintig for her :) I wouldn't either :D That's another thing, relatives seems to not realize that there are only some themes I can paint (or enjoy) and that portraits, for example, don't have to be one of them :D

Yea :XD: I know exactly what you mean. a lot of my friends in school always ask me to paint or draw this and that, not concidering that I am only human ;P Someone even asked for a Mona Lisa replicat :D I mean even todays best painters in the world would have trouble painting like Da vinci and they come to the idea of asking a little hobby wannabe artist from school if he could do it :D
