Next up is a hosta leaf with water droplets. The first reference photo is reasonably close to the actual color and values. The drawing is being done with the aid of a grid. It feels a bit like cheating but I guess it's no different than any of the jigs I use in my woodworking. A black and white print should help with the values on this piece. There is still a ways to go on the drawing. The plan is to treat the drops like any other value and color on the piece. The lighter part of the upper background seems a bit distracting so I may just keep the values darker there.
