This is a little sketch I did recently while driving in the car. It began with a couple of leaves and grew organically from there.

Unfortunately, I was a bit distracted by having to pick up my car from the shop for an oil change today, and did not take a picture of the progress. Check back tomorrow for all new pictures and more color.

Nice. Was the green color in the middle there already and you sketched on top of it? Looks like that was the case. I really like the vein treatment in the center leaf. Groovy.

Also nice work on the mural. I keep tabs on your progress through the blog. Very cool. Great work for the resume and something that will be around for a long time.

Yeah, you're totally right. The color was already on the page when I started and a crude sketch of the biggest leaf.
Thank you for all your kind words. It means a lot coming from a talented and knowledgable peer such as yourself. It has been very exciting to work on a painting of this scale and to meet so many people in the community that stop by to chat. If you get a chance, you should come say hi.
I've been enjoying following your blog too. The energy in your drawings and the detail is simply delightful to get into.
