an Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Oak Leaf and Acorns'
4 x 6

I had taken some great pictures of acorns and dried
acorn leaves thinking they would make good paintings,
so I decided to use one of them for my black and white study.
This was so much fun to work on because there were
a lot of subtle shifts in the value changes, and I loved
the shadows that helped pop out the lighter tones.

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

Great study Claire. I hope to see it in person at some point. I am also looking forward to next month's challenge!
