Maple Leaf Sketch

Here’s another sketch that I worked on this week. I painted the leaf with watercolor and then added colored pencil on top.

The colors are a bit off in this photo, a little more green to the leaf. I still think I need to improve the blending of colored pencils to get the right effect. I think the next one like this I will try on smoother paper to see if that makes a difference.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I love the colour mixing and the depth you created. You can see the leaf is off the surface in places, maybe you could exaggerate that a little more on the left half of the leaf (but it is probably the photo that is making it appear lighter).
    Have you tried water colour pencils?

    • Thanks Antje! The colors aren’t true in the photo. The camera doesn’t seem to take the layers of color correctly. Yes, I have several different kinds of watercolor, pencils, crayons etc.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
