The assignment was to create a design using leaves. I started by picking leaves with a wide of hues, texture, and shape. I had some leftover illustration board that I didn't want to throw away so I made three small designs. I started by loosely painting the background with punchy colors that would compliment the colors of the leaves. I also exposed parts of the background by removing parts of the leaves. I also added cut paper that mimicked the edges and hue but not necessarily value of the leaves.
