Scattered Leaves

I love leaves.

I love leaves so much that I am constantly picking them up in our yard or on the trail, saving them for inspiration. I often find leaves tucked in books and sketchbooks.

I’m so happy with how this drawing of scattered leaves turned out. I picked a random leaf from my pile and drew it on my page using graphite pencils.

I added the names of the trees these leaves fell from in my cursive writing, which seems to be a dying art these days.

I love working on compositions like this. I just wish it hadn’t taken me so long to finish.

I need to work on staying focused on one project at a time, in spite of all the ideas swirling around in my head and all the inspiration out there in the world.

  1. Lovely renderings, Terri! I especially like the leaf drawing. I enjoy those also, and if you were to open nearly any large book in my studio, many pressed leaves would fall out! So I know that we both love leaves and nature a lot! Enjoying those pressed leaves in winter is a nice treat!

  2. Your scattered leaf page is gorgeous, I could sit and look at it for a long time 🙂 and I love the cursive writing that you added – I love cursive writing to this day although I don’t do it as often as I could. It’s lovely to see a project through to the end, even if it does take you longer than you though – though my favourite motto is ‘it will take as long as it takes’ 🙂

  3. Great drawings Terri. I think they would look cool framed for a wall. I need to get back to my sketchbook soon I’ve had a little creative block lately and I need to get over it.
