I’ll be drawing numerous members of the genus Quercus, I think, and this is the first. It looks more like a willow leaf to my layperson’s eye: untoothed, long and ovoid and slender. But it’s an oak. This is the underside, and that’s what the name refers to; the tops of the leaves are a rich green.

I fell right into bed without drawing yesterday, distracted by the happy, rare event of having friends stay in the house. But it is a quiet day with a work-free Sunday to follow, so I can do a second drawing today.
