I've been wanting to draw the corner of our grape arbor with its withering leaves, but it's been too cold and wet, so today I brought some leaves inside. Early on, it was clear that they were going to look very plain, drawn on the toned paper. I remembered Kalina's dramatic black brush pen work, so I thought I'd add some black to the negative spaces. I was listening to a very interesting radio program and probably got a little carried away, but I had a good time. Yesterday's rule about not using markers for leaves has already been broken. So much for rules.
