Still virtually dating the sketch!

I decided to crop the image and try a close-up view of the leaves, with water droplets on them. It wasn't entirely successful- I started off with quite a realistic drawing at the top, but somehow it got more and more abstract towards the bottom! Quite often, whether it's sketching or stitching, what is in my head doesn't come out through my fingers....

I did this in Faber Castell polychromos pencils on 8 x 5 cartridge paper. I'm learning to go smaller!!
