I did this yesterday after work. I wanted to sit outside on the patio and sketch something, deciding on a fallen oak leaf. I borrowed a stone from my "fairy pot" to keep the wind from blowing it away. I had a lot of fun with this drawing and am really proud of how it turned out. The sun was setting when I drew it which created some really great shadow effects. Unfortunately, by the time I was ready to make that shadow behind the leaf, the sun had dipped behind the trees so I had to guess. I much prefer drawing leaves to teacups and Xbox controllers!
