Leaf studies

Went back to the Succulent collection and did a page of leaf studies. I think I have a better handle on the Aloe leaf now but it's quite a challenge for me to put accurate contour lines, the leaf is turning multiple times, the perspective is changing and the shape of the leaf itself is more complicated than it looks. I will try to do a full Aloe Plant next. But it's going to be messy ;)

It's my 19th sketch-a-day in a row. Let's see how long this streak can be ;)

  1. Those turns can be very confusing. It looks like you nailed them - your sketches read perfectly clear. Can't wait to see the whole plant!
