White Oak Leaf

Here's a new start with an old drawing. I'm working this one slowly and deliberately. I'm pleased with the lack of blotches--meaning that I am working with a proper brush, nice and dry. I will build up color, shadow, and highlight over time, poco a poco.


  1. Already you have achieved dimension and form that is quite lovely. I can "feel" this leaf with my eyes!

  2. Thanks, Gretchen. This was one of my very first drawings and still a favorite. In fact, I had to deframe it in the office.
