Today's crosshatching exercise, I sketched this sumac leaf. I sketched it nearly life-sized -- it went from the paper's edge to the spirals. (With forethought, I'd have turned the book the other way...) I noted that the leaves toward the bottom of the plants are starting to turn colors; as my students often do, I tried to show the red and orange colors of these leaves by rubbing one on the page (that being the color scribbles at the bottom) but they didn't turn out as bright as real life, so I also took a quick photo.
