I am drawing a gray oak leaf (Quercus grisea) and loving the white fuzz on it. Actually drawing it, on the other hand . . . I have to look at how people draw textures like this, because drawing in a zillion little dots is going to drive me around the bend. Of course, I could draw it white on black, e.g. with a scratchboard. That would be better suited, but still, why do I let myself in for this level of detail?

So, I’ll continue working on it, and post tomorrow, but in the meantime I’ll be searching for botanical drawings of fuzzy plants.
