Finish one drawing, start another

I finished the green leaves drawing, tentatively named "Fresh Leaves" and started another one. This new one is much smaller since we will be leaving on a trip in less than two weeks and need to prepare for it. This new drawing was taken last summer in deep shade, making the filtered light turn the leaf blue. I decided to keep it that color. It's different.

A start on Spring drawings

Even though there isn't much green yet I started a green drawing. This photo was taken last May. I digitally manipulated this photo to bring out more contrast and a greater sense of depth. A "find edges" filter produced the line image that I did the basic drawing from.
What a great opportunity to use bright greens!
