This post takes us through the first six steps detailed in yesterday's post.
|A package of spring mix to add to my class specimens.|
|I pawed through the mix, looking for the just right leaves.|
|Once selected, each leaf was trimmed to open a fresh stalk. From this point on, the leaves are kept on wet paper towels and spritzed. (I later changed my mind on a couple of leaves.)|
|Timothy was in one of his howling moods.|
|Final arrangement, ready for initial measurements.|
|Key dimensions, measured with dividers and transferred to the drawing.|
|Roughed in outlines.|
Note that the drawings above are considerably lighter, enhanced for display. At this time, I'm refining the outlines, will then add veining, and lastly apply tone. More tomorrow!
