I finally finished the orange tree. It was a bit more difficult than I thought it would be because the leaves are monotonously the same color. The lack of variegation meant I had to rely on highlights and shadows although I did take some liberties and added colors for interest.
I’m pleased with the end result and am anxious to move on to the next subject. I don’t know if I will start on the squash or work on the honey bee. The delicacy of the squash blossom is an inviting problem to solve. Although, after the orange tree leaves, fine detail required for the honey bee might be welcome. I’ll let you know what I decide in my next blog.
I have not had time to test time-lapse filming of work in progress yet. Don’t know if that will get done this week. I’m trying to get as much work done as I can because I will be away from the drawing table most of the weekend. Fun distractions so I don’t really mind too much.
