Leafscape Second Edition

by J R Shepherd

Judas leaf, aka 'Carlos'.    Leaf 020120171416. 56 x 35 cm, Watercolour on paper, work in Progress

The second edition of Leafscape is well under way! Inky Leaves Publishing has met up with the printer and we have all agreed that this book will have a sap green cover in contrast to the white hard back edition. We have selected the papers and I am now cracking on in the studio trying my best to eek out at least four new paintings in a month. It's hard work, but I am really enjoying it after several months away from the easel. 

Working in the UK on a Fig Leaf in my pop up studio soon after posting the last hard back Leafscape book. 

So here is a sneaky preview of what you can expect, but as you know, there will be a surprise in store as there always is an unexpected element in these books. For those who purchased the hard cover, I am sure you found many things that you weren't expecting. I am also trying to paint a larger Ginkgo leaf (this is super hard going - do not try this at home) and a Rose. 

If you would like to pre-order your limited edition Leafscape book please click here to reserve a copy. Books will be posted during August 2017 at the latest.
  
All of these paintings will be for sale. Prices range from £500 - £1500 unframed. Please contact Inky Leaves if you are interested in purchasing an original.
