Friday Sketches - Week 21

Welcome to Friday Sketches.  This week it's all about 'Sketching Foliage' and I'm sharing some foliage sketches from some of my sketchbooks.

It's been a glorious summer in the mid-west, very tropical-esque, and that means that the foliage around our area is abundant.  My usual flower subjects are still my favorite, but I can't pass up some of the beautiful leaves that I've seen.

Sketching leaves is vastly underestimated.  They can make beautiful subjects for your sketchbook. 

Here are some of the stunning entries from last weeks "Friday Sketches".  Be sure to stop by their blogs and let them know you appreciate their work.

  8. Beautiful leaves, so very refreshing to see and sketched so awesomely! Great to see all the other sketches too. Must add mine later as my post is not ready yet ! :-)

  9. I agree - foliage can be gorgeous and since the deer eat all the flowers (except marigolds) I have to look for pretty foliage which isn't on the local deer menu!! Beautiful watercolored sketches.

  10. I like nature put into art, like you do with the different kinds of leaves! And beautiful art shared on your page, some of whom I know :-)
    Happy PPF
