Pardon my French (!!), Lin, but holy crap!!! This is a gorgeous leaf! The colors are dead on, and its shadow adds to the realism. Bravisimo!

Lin, this leaf is just awesome! The shadow and the wee veins and little imperfections simply MAKE it!

Lorraine said...

Oh my goodness as you say! The leaf is
exquisite -- those tiny veins -- that
detail and color! Just incredible.
Hugs,
Lorraine

Yes indeed, Lin. Very beautiful and I agree with Tami about the leap forward.

Penny said...

Gorgeous leaves, this and the last post and oh I do love that bee. Not much time to look at the computer lately so I am catching up on all your fall colour.

Jana Bouc said...

Beautiful fall color and sensitive line work! And you squeezed in a post even on a super busy day! Yay Lin!
