Red Oak

I got in a bit more of a tonal range with this Red Oak leaf. The first shot looks very close to the drawing held up next to my monitor screen. The second has Photoshop's Levels Auto applied. I didn't do very much with detail while focusing on tone. Walking while chewing gum...

I did a wee bit of collecting today--it was simply too cold for more than that. Sunday's temps look to be more comfortable, in the high 40's.

The Stonehenge paper came in today and I'm about to try it our now... I didn't realize how heavy it is, quite similar to the Bristol Board.


  1. I am so impressed with your drawings- keep them coming!
    Word of warning: art supplies are every bit as addicting as camera equipment and books.... :-)

  2. Thanks Gretchen. :-)

    Indeed, the Blick Bible arrived this week. Still, it's a whole lot cheaper than Canon...
