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.
