Leafy Greens

Once again I reverted to the inimitable Ann Swan and her lovely book Botanical Portraits, this time to work on drawing and shading an ivy leaf that she describes in fair detail from beginning to end. It’s just an excuse to bust out the greens in the coloured pencil range, but long term it is to hopefully improve my drawing and to one day produce something that approximates the choice of subject, whether it be flowers, trees, fruit etc. and that exhibits my own style, whatever that may be.


Starting out……



Adding in a little more colour and shading…..
