Early in my art training I was studying under Mary Jo Leisure.  Mary Jo is a Master Decorative Artist and has an incredible ability to create beautiful harmony and design in her paintings.   One year at a seminar with Mary Jo, we were painting a large wooden plate full of roses and leaves.  There must have been over a hundred leaves in the painting.  Everyone was complaining about how many leaves there were.  I had to laugh because I actually loved painting the leaves.  If you are a flower lover and painter like me then you know you will probably paint thousands of leaves in your lifetime so I made this concept lesson on how to mix color  and paint leaves.   This was originally filmed for my past online course Learn Paint Grow.
