So at last i have finished my leaves on my Jasmine officinalis.

I think my leaves are finished after many hours of painting!  I wanted to weight the bottom; so i decided to fade the leaves at the top and they are also further away so wanted that fadeing in the distance affect. Once again picture quality isn't that great and if you scan in high resolution; the colours are very muted. Not sure how to get round this problem of producing good quality pictures! What do you guys think?
Now it's time to start on the flowers and stems!!!

Looks very striking already Julie - a difficult assignment but you're doing great

Ahhh Vicki; i'm missing you :)Yes not easy working from photographs! I did some more work on the leaves today and i have managed to paint one bud :) Really not easy painting white flowers onto a white background! xxx

Absolutely beautiful Julie! Great composition with parts of the jasmine extending outside of the 'box'. I look forward to see it finished, all the best with doing the flowers! :)
