I completely forgot about this pile of sketches that I had from my first summer at Valleyfair. I was on a leaf-drawing kick for a while, and here's a couple of them. I used to really enjoy drawing leaves. They're so unique in form, and every stage of their life is so characteristic of the time of year. I wouldn't say that it is all that challenging to draw their form convincingly because there really isn't a wrong way to depict them. Never-the-less, it is still fun to explore the shapes, sizes, textures etc.
