In the hope that you may like to try a drawing of your own, I want to share a 2 techniques that I employ in my work: bounding boxes and observational drawing. These are foundational drawing techniques that can be used to achieve realism and accuracy in your work.
I’m going to use leaves to demonstrate how to use a bounding box, and how to observe closely. In so doing, I will show you a 4 step process that you can follow to draw a leaf of your own.

Back in early November, a full 3 months ago, I received an email from a PhD candidate at York University. She would be teaching an Introduction to Natural History class in the winter term and she invited me to give a presentation on natural science illustration, and to provide her class with drawing instruction so they would be able to record some plants at a greenhouse on campus.
