What is a holly leaf?
English holly (I. aquifolium), a tree growing to 15 metres (nearly 50 feet) tall, bears shining spiny dark evergreen leaves and usually red fruits. The somewhat taller American holly (I. opaca) has oblong prickly leaves and usually red fruits. There are spineless and yellow-fruited forms of both species.
How do you draw a leaf shape?
Start by drawing a long line for your stem, then begin your leaf shape about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of that line. Curve out and upward, creating a point at the top above where your original line ended. Then, curve back down to meet the beginning of your shape.
