All Kinds of Trees, Lynn Cohen's "Fig Tree"
I only had to go into my own backyard to draw this huge fig tree of ours. I did it almost as a blind contour with just a little peeking. There were so many leaves to draw! I hope I gave the illusion as to just how large this tree is. We have to cut it back some almost every other year or it overtakes the whole side of the yard. The sky is dark blue today and there was a breeze blowing the leaves. I could see some hints of purple as some of the figs are ripening! They will be so delicious when ready to eat! Like eating candy off a tree!
