How do you draw a leaf sketch?
- Find the main stem. Note where it crosses the middle line. In my case it goes right through the center.
- Observe the main veins of the leaf. See how far they spread from each other.
- Compare right and left side of the leaf. See where the veins start. Sketch them lightly.
- Consider light and dark values.
What is a simple leaf?
: a leaf whose blade is not divided to the midrib even though lobed — compare compound leaf.
