Draw a Fall Leaf

The object for "Draw a Fall Leaf" fell into my lap, literally.  I was watching the girls play in their sandbox with my sketchbook in hand wondering what I was going to draw.  I leaned over and plucked a random plant.  The three leaf clover with the cool little hole in it.  When the clover was almost finished the leaf came down I almost brushed it away then realized I had plenty of white space to fill. 

I would have gone on a hunt for a third object to round out the picture but the girls were winging sand everywhere and didn't stop.  Just like school one person makes a mistake and everyone has to stop playing.

Tonight I'm going to set a large bowl out under the trees.  Whatever it catches I'm going to draw tomorrow.  How's that for random art?

Don't forget to link up your art for Show Me Something Creative the deadline for this week is Oct 9th.

  1. I love it when subjects just happen like that! It makes the drawing more meaningful for it -- a remembrance of a day.

  2. You have captured the crispy effect in the leaf beautifully. And I like how the clover has that wee muched hole in it. Great. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting.
