Project Description

Paint with me as I take you along in this step-by-step class and you'll be surprised at how realistic your autumn leaves will look!

At the end of the class, please post your final project to the Project Gallery so I can your amazing artwork! If you post this class's output on Instagram, make sure to use the hashtag #whatacolorskillshare and tag me- @whatacolor_gal. I'd love to show your results in my Stories! <3 

You can find the pictures I used for inspiration below (sources - Pintrest and Unsplash).
