Fall Homage Sketch

I started this sketch about a week ago. It is so much harder to draw dying leaves than healthy ones! There is just so much more varied texture really. Decay is not easy to draw; just sayin... lol.

I eyed this sketch in a 4x6 wooden frame, and I liked the look of it framed that way... especially in a walnut/natural frame. Very autumny hehe.

I was thinking of seasonal sketches I could do, and liked this idea for Thanksgiving. Many other ideas are bubbling to the surface though as well, which I want to have ready for next year's season.

Currently working on some ideas for winter, both simple sketches like this and more complex scenes!


  1. How long does it usually take you to do a drawing? I love fall too. It's always been my favorite season. There are things I love about each season but I think fall is my favorite time of the year.

  2. Me too! Def favorite season lol!

    It depends completely on what I am drawing really... For this leaf it took about 3 evenings to complete since I have never drawn a leaf before, and I had to sort of discover how I wanted to go about representing the texture. It should take a lot less time the next one I try, but I guess I will find out lol.
