Another way to create foliage is with a natural sea sponge.

This is the most common way for creating foliage but to be honest, it is not my favorite.

Perhaps it is because quite often it looks contrived.

It becomes the same pattern of leaves over and over again.

 To avoid this look of everything being the same, turn your sponge different ways and use different sides of it when applying the paint.

This will help in making different patterns of leaves and foliage.
