Layered Leaf Drawing

Metallic markers are great for adding a bit of “highlight” to any drawing or painting.
1. Draw many large simple leaves that are overlapping and even going off a sheet of paper.
2. Trace the lines with a black marker and color in with bright marker colors.
3. Add gold or silver Sharpie marker lines to the leaves as shown.
4. Use a thin marker to draw lots of lines in the spaces between the leaves.

This is lovely, the leaves are offset beautifully by the concentric line work. :)Elizabeth

I always feel that you can't use to many colors when coloring drawing like this. But I guess I was wrong. It all about being creative and you are so creative.
