Day 13 - A Drawing a Day

Drawing On the Masters
Let whoever may have attained to so much as to have the power
of drawing know that he holds a great treasure.

Fall leaves, by Julie Ann Terry. "These leaves have been on my drawing table since fall and their colors are still amazing." Julie Ann Terry. Good use of cast shadow here to give us all an idea of the relationships of the leaves to each other, and the two long stems give this drawing a lively air.
How About: Make sure you have inspiration by saving specimens to work with when you have a moment. Save the plastic containers you get deli items or other food stuffs. Give them a good wash. You can pop a specimen or several into the container, pop the top on, and have your specimens in a safe, easy to store space.
