Leaves, leaves, leaves

leaf study 9-6

I’ve started working on leaf studies as part of my five-week Leaves class. So far I’ve almost finished—is anything EVER finished?— a french bean leaf, and begun a Cranes-bill leaf (upper right) and the always intimidating Primula leaf. What a beast! Each week we will add a different specimen and by the end of five weeks I’ll have, hopefully, an interesting leaf composition and a better working knowledge of how these suckers work. It is all about the leaves, this I know . . .
