Magnolia Leaf

5 x 7 inches, oil on gessoed paper.
Just to prove to myself that I can do something in one sitting, I painted this in an evening.
I prefer, though, to work on something over a period of two or more days. There are usually things that bother me, things I didn't get right initially. Sometimes a painting will roll out effortlessly and perfectly, without anything to be fixed. It's rare. When that happens, I have to keep from meddling in it.
